This is an open letter to all the business members and community members of Grand Ledge.
Firstly, we would like to express a heartfelt Thank YOU to each and every one of you who have so generously supported the Stuff the Bus for the Food Bank campaign that we have been spearheading for the last 29 years.
We have grown from a few bags of groceries in our very first year to a pickup truck-bed full to using the Independence Village bus to changing to an all monetary donation collection that exceeded $15,000 last year.
This town has a reputation of taking care of its own and The Grand Ledge Food Bank run by GLSDA has been a grateful recipient of the food and funds we have raised.
That time of the year has rolled around again and we are earnestly asking each of you to help us yet again.
We have looked at several different options to reach our goal and the one we like the best is, if we ask you if you could donate at least the value of one bag of groceries. We have a bag that includes toilet paper, deodorant, shampoo, soap, pasta sauce, pasta, 3 cans of veggies and 3 cans of beans and soup and it comes out to just around $35.00.
Our goal this year is $17,500 or the equivalent of 500 bags of groceries.
The question is: “How many bags of groceries would you be prepared to cover the cost of?”
We welcome all donations, great and small, and would ask that the checks be made out directly to GLSDA FOOD BANK.
Please mail them to our office so that we can coordinate the collection.
PLEASE SEND THE CHECKS TO:

This campaign will close November 22nd, 2019
THANK YOU AGAIN!
