GLEAP Christmas Food Basket
The Grand Ledge Emergency Assistance Program (GLEAP) is currently taking applications for its annual Christmas Food Basket program for families who live in the Grand Ledge School District. Donors in the community (individuals & groups) have volunteered to provide a food basket during the Christmas season for families in need. If this would be helpful for your family, please submit an application by October 28 – pick up a paper application in the school's main office or complete an online application at GLcomets.net/ChristmasFoodBasket. You will be contacted by a donor sometime early in December. This will be done on a first-come, first-serve basis.
