In our pursuit of engaging with and supporting our local community, we are creating a monthly spotlight on our blog and social media called "FIT4MOM for Equity". We will be highlighting area businesses, organizations, and programs who are working to bring equity to everyone living in the Grand Rapids area.
Grandville Avenue Arts & Humanities
Grandville Avenue Arts & Humanities (GAAH) exists to provide their neighbors access to the arts and critical community resources through a variety of classes, programs, and services (computers, wifi, printing, faxing--to name a few). GAAH operates the Cook Arts Center and the Cook Library Center with all programs being free for families living in the Roosevelt Park and Black Hills neighborhoods, or students attending César E. Chávez or Southwest Community Campus schools. For those living outside of the Grandville Avenue neighborhood boundaries or who don't go to these schools, some of their programs have an income-based registration fee. GAAH's wide variety of offerings can be found here.
GAAH is currently accepting school item donations that can be dropped off at either of their locations through August 16. Here is their list of requested items.
In addition to their donation drive, they are also hosting an event on Sunday, August 15 at 2pm at Studio Park. Girls Rock! Grand Rapids Summer Showcase 2021 is a free event that will feature the bands from Girls Rock! Camp 2021, a Grandville Avenue Arts & Humanities program that exists to empower girls, women and non-binary folks through music.
Thank you, Grandville Avenue Arts & Humanities, for pursuing equity for our neighbors. You are making such a beautiful difference in our city and the lives of those around you!
