Mel Trotter Ministries Glove Drive

Mel Trotter Ministries Glove Drive


May Group Realtors of Re/Max Grand Rapids is hosting a glove drive all month of March. There is a large need for gloves right now, even though we are approaching warmer months. Mel Trotter Ministries was specific on what is needed and we wanted to help out in the best way possible. We have made it very easy to donate with an Amazon Wish List.

It started in 1900 by Melvin Trotter who was homelss and an alcoholic, found refuge and support to get off the streets and got sober.
