First lets start with our new name. As many of you already know we are now using the name The Green Apple. The board applied to the State of Michigan last summer to do business as The Green Apple and we have their ap- proval. The reasoning was that The Pantry was too specific for our community. We wanted a name that included all of the services and programs we provide. Since the green apple was in our logo it seemed to be the obvious choice. The board is currently working with a free lance artist to make the necessary changes. We plan to keep the green and orange color scheme and will have new brochure and stationery by the first of February.

Thank you to all students and staff who participated in this annual event. The East Kentwood High School Community collected over 3,000 pounds of food for The Green Apple. This was a friendly competition between local High Schools, but it is clearly a winning opportunity for our neighbors. Read full post
