Coins for Kids

Coins for Kids is a wonderfully easy and tangible way that you can make a difference for life. We will host a baby bottle drive starting next week. Bottles will be distributed to students.

The drive is quite simple:
  • To participate a student takes a baby bottle home.
  • The bottle is then filled with change (or checks made payable to Grand Rapids Right to Life (GRRTL).
  • The bottle is returned to homeroom on or before May 11.
We ask that every bottle that is taken is brought back, as every bottle that is not returned will need to be replaced.  If a student does not plan on participating, they do not need to take a bottle.
All proceeds benefit agencies that provide material support for women and families facing unplanned pregnancies (Alpha Grand Rapids, The Baby and Toddler Pantry of Catholic Charities, HELP Crisis Pregnancy Aid, Pregnancy Resource Center, Baby Pantry of Lowell) and the outreach efforts of Grand Rapids Right to Life.
