Here at Steve Volkers Group, we have found that volunteering can open the door to incredibly rewarding experiences—both for our team and for those we serve. We love immersing ourselves into the Grand Rapids community each month, and we would love for you to follow along with our journey!
As the old saying goes, “You make a living by what you get; you make a life by what you give.”
In May, our team volunteered at The Ronald McDonald House in Grand Rapids! Of course, we chose to make tacos (we have quite an obsession here for Taco Tuesday!) We were so grateful to have the opportunity to cook a nice meal for families who deal with the reality of having a sick/ injured child at the hospital. We understand it can be incredibly overwhelming to parents and siblings, so we were to happy to do anything to make their day a little brighter. We met so many amazing people while we were there, and the facility and hospitality of each employee there is beyond amazing. If you are considering volunteering here, click here!
We had a great time painting in July with ICCF (Inner City Christian Federation). They offer affordable, quality housing and services for those who would not otherwise have the opportunity! Working with ICCF is always enlightening. They strive to engage and encourage the community of Grand Rapids to help make places for families to come home to.

Our team had a great time volunteering at HQ! We were so thankful we got to learn all of the amazing things they do for our Grand Rapids community.
