Other Ways to Give

A gift opens the way and ushers the giver into the presence of the great. Proverbs 18:16

VIS is adhering to the governor's shelter in place and are still meeting those who have essential needs. Our volunteer opportunities are listed below:

Grocery shopping and delivery - While following the governor's safety guidelines, VIS needs volunteers who are willing to shop from a provided list and deliver the food to the people in need. 

Transportation - VIS IS still transporting people to their vital appointments such as Dialysis treatment or blood work.

Phone and/or Card friend - Many of our VIS friends are feeling isolated during this shelter in place and are requesting a weekly phone call or note encouraging them.  What a great way to show the love of Christ in a simple way.  

If you are interested, please call Debbie Jones at or phone the VIS office at 459-7500.  

Furniture Ministry - VIS partners with several agencies in Kent County to fill the furniture requests. If you have access to a vehicle that can transport furniture, a flexible schedule and an ability to lift and deliver furniture to homes in Grand Rapids, we DESPERATELY NEED you! Please contact Tracey at
