SPOTLIGHT MISSIONS 2018

March

 Society of St. Andrew Potato Project

We salvage tractor-trailer loads of potatoes and other produce that are rejected by commercial markets or potato chip factories due to slight imperfections in size, shape, sugar content, or surface blemishes.

Usually, these rejected loads end up at local landfills. Through the Potato and Produce Project, the Society of St. Andrew is able to redirect these 40,000-45,000-pound loads of fresh, nutritious produce to food banks, soup kitchens, food pantries, low income housing areas, local churches, and other hunger agencies for distribution to the poor.

April 

Redford/Brightmoor Initiative

May

 Liberia Task Force

The Bishop Craig Children’s Village has been in operation since 2000 with primary support from the Detroit, West Michigan, West Ohio, Indiana and Liberia Annual Conferences. The center provides counseling, healthcare, education, and shelter to destitute youth in war-torn areas. In recent months children orphaned by Ebola have found help and hope at the Village.
