Year-End Giving

Nuestra Casa renovationIt’s amazing how much has been accomplished at Nuestra Casa neighborhood center to renovate this abandoned home for neighbors to use as a gathering place.

Volunteers, friends, neighbors, and generous donors have given their time and money to procure the materials needed, and make the work happen.

  • Women’s Service Day participants raised the roof this year on October 3.
  • Companies like Herman Miller and Johnson Controls have donated funds and also provided plenty of volunteers.
  • Hope College students contributed volunteer hours for work days both this year and last.
  • Women Who Care chose Nuestra Casa for its quarterly donation.
  • Tireless construction team leaders have shown up in all kinds of weather–with and without crews—to keep the project moving.

Thanks to the work by so many people, great strides have been made in creating “pride of place” in the City of Holland.

But there are still ways to give.

In addition to ongoing work days, you can shop for Nuestra Casa via the online gift registries to purchasing gifts in kind. These gifts will help equip Nuestra Casa with necessities for its educational, social, and community programs. Just in time for Cyber Monday! Simply link to this blog post about where and how to shop for Nuestra Casa online.

On December 19, stop by Orange Leaf in downtown Holland and eat yogurt for Nuestra Casa! Ten percent of all profits will go to the neighborhood center that day. Come between 11:00 a.m. and 11:00 p.m.

You can also make a donation for the neighborhood center by writing a check to Good Samaritan Ministries, the project’s fiduciary agent, with “Nuestra Casa” in the memo line and send it to:

Good Samaritan Ministries

Or, you can make an online donation through the Women’s Service Day website.

Any contribution you can make is appreciated!
