MakeADifferenceDayThe Rockford High School Team, Supplies for Students, is doing more than just collecting school supplies for the students at the Boys and Girls Club in downtown Grand Rapids. They have expanded their good works and partnered with LegalSheld Saturday, October 27 to package more than 10,000 meals at the Boys and Girls Club Location at 235 Straight Avenue.

The food dry food was rice, chicken, soy and dried vegetable. One third of the packaged meals goes to God’s Kitchen in Grand Rapids one third goes to storage to be used in disaster relief and one third goes to an impoverished country where the citizens are in dire need. Lives are saved by participating in Make A Difference Day.

The Rockford students are in grades nine through 12 at Rockford High School. “The primary mission is to aid the Boys and Girls Club in providing supplies for their students,” said organizer Megan Malley.  “This includes school supplies in the summer and basic supply needs such as hats, gloves, mittens, socks and undergarments in the winter.  In addition, our club is beginning to set up a tutoring schedule.  Both Ally and I are the presidents of the club and this is our first year bringing it into the school and getting more students involved.”
