Keystone partners with organizations working for change on the Westside of Grand Rapids to show God’s love in tangible ways. Our efforts directly focus on the families of Sibley Elementary School where more than 95% of families live at or below the poverty line.
Over the past year, Keystone friends have donated hundreds of hours and thousands of dollars to encourage, support, and demonstrate God’s love in tangible ways. We work with others in the community to ensure our energies are systemic and that the impact is sustainable. Test scores and attendance are climbing. Parental involvement is at an all-time high. Moreover, the Keystone-Sibley partnership is now a model for others with a heart for the schools on the Westside of Grand Rapids.
Our yearly initiatives include a school Supply Drive, ACCESS Countywide Food Drive, Winter Clothing & Coat Drive, Thanksgiving Food Drive, The Other Way Christmas Store, Christmas Adopt-a-Family, Hygiene Product Collection, Book Drive, Bingo-for-Books. 5th Grade Celebration, and Reading Works (summer reading & tutoring program).
