BBQ for Residents of the
Samaritas Family Shelter in Westland

We are hosting a BBQ for the resident adults and children! We would love some help with the purchase, preparing and serving food, plus games for the children. Sign-up Here to participate. Please contact Bonnie Reyes at 734-546-0444 or [email protected],com if you can volunteer – or for more questions.
Please prayerfully consider how you and your family can best participate in Mercy-in-Action this year.

Please pray for the families at the shelter.
