Donate your time this Spring Break

Community Outreach

Are you and your family or friends looking for something to do over spring break?  Spend a day of your stay-cation with us at Mel Trotter!

  1. We invite groups to join us in our Day Center. Spend time building relationships with our shelter guests in the Day Center by playing cards or board games, help us celebrate birthdays, or suggest another activity that you can enjoy with them!
  2. It’s important for us to keep our building as organized as possible for our program guests.  We want to make sure every individual in the building feels loved, valued and has a place to call home.  We’re looking for small groups to help tear down bunkers and reorganize rooms on our women’s side.  
  3. Do you have painting, organizational or interior design skills? We’re looking to refresh the break room/copy room on our men’s side and also deep clean and paint some of our office areas.
  4. If you’re looking for something people of all ages can participate in, we would love some extra hands to help us wash interior windows in conference rooms, our chapel, outside walls, and day center.

Please contact our Volunteer Coordinator, Paula Seales, at or 616-588-8723 if you’re interested in learning more about how you can spend some of your spring break with our guests.
