In the spirit of charity and giving, TMA West Michigan has invited Julie Liske with Circles Grand Rapids to share about what this non-profit is doing to systematically eliminate poverty in our area. We would encourage you to consider how you can help. Cash and credit card donations will be accepted, with TMA WM matching your gifts (up to a pre-determined amount).
About Circles Grand Rapids "Circles Grand Rapids is a long-term approach to end poverty permanently in our community. Each week, local families working to overcome poverty meet with community volunteers over dinner. Following the meal, pairs work to achieve specific personal goals toward self-reliance. Over time, incomes and savings improve, debt and public assistance decrease and supportive social networks are built.
While parents receive tools to help manage money and time, improve career skills and progress toward goals, children enjoy programming including: interactive/age-appropriate sessions on financial literacy, emotional health, mindfulness, service, compassion, volunteerism and much more."
About Paddock Place "The Pub at Paddock is a casual and cozy cut-out of the grand old mansion in East Hills, known as Paddock Place (formerly Gibson's and Mangiamo). The space is comprised of: a traditional tap room, a more intimate library, tuscan room and sun porch. The kitchen serves traditional pub fare with sliders, flatbread pizza, tacos and more. Enjoy easy parking with a downtown restaurant feel."
