I consider myself extremely blessed because at the end of my day, I have a warm home with a cozy fireplace to call my own. I know there are lots of people who live nearby who can't say the same. In fact last year, the Michigan Housing Authority estimated between 55,000 - 60,000 people are houseless in the state of Michigan.

And as it gets colder and colder going into the Holiday season, it's more important than before that those who don't have a warm place to stay of their own, have the support they need to get by. And sometimes, that's just being able to celebrate the holidays despite the fact they may not have a home and a tree of their own. That's where incredible organizations like Dégagé Ministries step in to help make life feel a little more normal for those in need.

The Heartside Community Christmas Store will be held on December 14th. This event allows the people Dégagé Ministries serves to be able to buy inexpensive gifts for their friends and loved ones.

How Can I Help With The Heartside Community Christmas Store at Dégagé Ministries?

There are three very easy ways you can make donations.

You can either drop a donation off in person at their location on Division Street and Cherry, now through December 9th. You can also make a monetary donation on their website or, you can buy something from their amazon wishlist, which will be sent directly to the organization on your behalf (one of the easiest options.)

If you'd like more details on how you can help, you can email Kacey@degageministries.org or give them a call at 616-454-1661
