AmeriCorps VISTAS from the Ionia ISD, with help from family and friends, as well as Ionia County Youth Advisory Council members, came together to give back on Make a Difference Day. IM KIDS 3rd Meal held a Fill A Cart fundraiser on Saturday, October 24th.
It was a damp morning but that could not prevent the numerous volunteers and the generosity of three great communities that IM Kids 3rd Meal serves from having a successful event. Volunteers were stationed at the Ionia Walmart, Leppinks in Belding and the Village Market in Carson City. In total we were able to gather 7 carts full of food and $161 in donations. Volunteers shared stories of people giving their gratitude for helping fill a need in their community.
