  • Grundy Mountain Mission does 40 loads of laundry per day for their residents. This comes to 14,600 loads of laundry in one year. Last January,  we started a project collecting money in the various Sunday School Classes to buy laundry detergent for Grundy’s laundry. To support this worthy cause.  Look for the Laundry Detergent containers in your Sunday School Class or at the information station.  Or if you are at home and would like to make a donation to this cause send a check to the church with a note saying that the money is for the laundry project or make an online by clicking on the online giving link and donating to GMMS Laundry Project.
