COMMON GROUND SANCTUARY

  • In the last six months, the congregation has donated approximately 145 pillows and blankets for the youth residents in the Sanctuary. Great job! We also donated a used refrigerator to assist with their food storage needs.
  • Common Ground also has several apartments in Southfield which are occupied by adults in need. They are looking for home goods such as vacuum cleaners, decorations, and supplies. If you have donations, please contact Dave Beatty at dbeatty09@yahoo.com.
  • If you are interested in assisting with a group activity for the youth, please contact Laurie O’Donnell at lodonnell@rofum.org                                                            or Jennifer Notarantonio at jnotar@sent.com.
