National ID Day

Location: area churches

National Diabetes Day
Tuesday, November 14, 2017
Location: Wherever you are!

The RED projects were established to bring awareness to how diabetes has damaged our community and how we can prevent it from further hurting us and our communities.

GAC is partnering with local churches to display and distribute information on diabetes prevention and maintenance. Diabetes is one of the leading killers in the African American community.

Do you need a kit or materials for your church? Please see or contact Danielle Lonie, P-13 Chair. (please take pics of your church or salon and wear RED on Sunday to your church). Please inbox us or contact us at garyalumnaedst@gmail.com to make arrangements to get the ID kits for your church.

Please support our P-13 Committee and Chapter initiative by getting information for the salon and church you attend/patronize.

Thanksgiving Patron List

Thanksgiving Patron List

The Thanksgiving Day Fellowship Dinner affords residents of Northwest Indiana with a hot, prepared meal on Thanksgiving Day who may not be able to afford one and/or who may not have family or friends to fellowship with. Moreover, it provides our members and other businesses, churches, non-profits, and social services agencies in Northwest Indiana with an opportunity to fellowship in the spirit of Thanksgiving with community residents they serve and who support their establishments.

It is our hope and desire to feed 500-1000 persons and we are delivering meals to NWI first responders, group homes, shelters, senior citizen homes and communities, domestic violence shelters and residents who cannot get out to the dinner to get a meal. To do this, we need delivery and transportation services. WE NEED YOU!

The Economic Development Committee continues to seek partnerships and PATRONS! Please click here to donate via Eventbrite for our Patron Levels:
