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 drives for school supplies, winter clothing, hygiene products and books. We also raise donations and rally volunteers for Thanksgiving meal cards, The Other Way Christmas Store, Bingo-for-Books. attendance celebrations, classroom connectors, and summer reading/tutoring programs.
