Do you create handcrafts? Are you a member of a group that does so--e.g., knitting, quilting, jewelry-making? We would love to include your items in one of the GC gift bags. And we will attach a "Handcrafted for you by (your name)" card to each item you make. Please deliver or mail them to:
2404 Burcham Drive
East Lansing, MI 48823
If you are dropping them off, GC is open for visitors Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursdays, 1:30-4:00 pm.
Please call ahead: 517-333-7727.
If you are a faith-based charitable organization, perhaps we can work together. Grandma's Comfort may be able to help you meet personal needs of your clients to give them a sense of comfort, caring, and love. We may be able to expand what you are currently able to provide with birthday gifts, comfort bags, or infant and mom layettes. Please contact us to determine if we might be able to combine our ministry with yours to help demonstrate God's love and comfort. Click on Contact Us.
If you are interested in volunteering, GC needs helpers for packing gift bags, assisting with acquisitions (i.e., shopping), sorting and tracking inventory, labeling, and other tasks. Just a few hours a month would be helpful. We can provide transportation if needed (and beverages, of course).
