  • Zion Food Pantry (Zion United Methodist Church, Washington Street Ionia, Michigan)
  • Rave (Relief After Violent Encounter) Servicing Ionia and Montcalm Counties
  • Jesus Fund (Assisting the Ionia Eight-Cap Chapter)
  • Christian Service Center (Ionia, MIchigan)
  • Vacation Bible School (Yearly contribution)
