“Rock the Grand Ledge Food Bank”
The Grand Ledge Community continues to show that they are caring neighbors. A small group
came together after retired Grand Ledge Police Officer Mark Sleep suggested promoting a food
and toiletries collection for the Grand Ledge Food Bank. They are calling it, “
Rock the Food Bank” with your donations.
Chris Richardson-Beagle has volunteered to be the
chairperson of this event. GLEAP is on board in hopes to raise awareness and funding for their
own nonprofit organization.
Every Thursday, now through to the end of August, when the “Music in the Park Summer
Concert Series” is performing, the donated Grand Ledge Ford Lincoln truck will be parked in the
library’s parking lot near the A&W food wagon at the Bridge Street Plaza. Music begins at 7:00
pm. The truck will be parked there beginning at 5:15 pm and remain until the end of the concert.
Donations are welcomed for the Grand Ledge Food Bank and also for GLEAP (Grand Ledge
Emergency Assistance Program). They have worked together for many years in helping those in
need in our community. Please write your donation check specific to your designated nonprofit
The Caring Neighbor Foundation is a sponsor of this event. Any questions, please contact Chris
