Want to be a blessing in someone's life? Need to make room in your closet? Donate those seldom worn, new and gently used coats, boots and blankets to our Annual Baldwin Center Drive. We will be accepting your donations Oct.5th through Oct.19th. The Baldwin Center distributes these items to the homeless, the displaced and marginalized of Pontiac. We need coats, boots and blankets for all genders, ages and sizes!

And the Journey Continues: Over $348,002.33 or 51% of our Capital Journey pledges have already been received! Wow! We are poised to move forward. An implementation task force is being formed, and a mechanical engineering firm has been hired to analyze our heating system and make recommendations for improvements. As a next step, an architectural/engineering firm will be hired to provide input for our overall path forward, with a first phase of renovation beginning as early as this summer. Thanks to all of you for your faithfulness!
