North Kent Community Services is able to debut its new website thanks to the Kent County Nonprofit Technical Assistance Fund (NPTA).
The NPTA is a collaborative program designed to address the need for capacity building and technical assistance among nonprofits in Kent County. The Fund was created in 2003 after a group of local grantmakers began discussions about the need to support capacity building and technical assistance services for nonprofit organizations in the community. To date, 124 grants totaling $836,163 have been awarded to 89 local organizations.
This website was designed and built by John Chickering and CityWebCentral in Rockford, MI. Thank you for all your hard work.
North Kent Community Services is seeking donations of new underwear and socks to distribute to 1,410 children this Christmas.
“Socks and underwear, along with pajamas and mittens, are the items most requested by our struggling families,” said Executive Director Claire Guisfredi. “Many of our families are working but still cannot make ends meet. With winter coming, help us keep children warm by covering their seats and feet.”
Please drop off new and unopened packages of underwear, socks and pajamas to North Kent Community Services, Monday through Thursday between 8:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. All donations are needed by Monday, December 9. We are located at 10075 Northland Dr. NE (north of 12 Mile Road).
