Members of the Metropolitan Community Church of Detroit (MMCD) in Ferndale organized a fundraiser throughout August, “Backpacks for Ruth”, and collected school supplies and backpacks for the residents of the Ruth Ellis Center, homeless and at-risk LGBT youth, just in time for school to begin.
The MCCD congregation managed to collect over 40 backpacks filled with school supplies such as pencils, notebooks, planners, etc., estimating the value of the donation to be around $3000. Ruth Ellis Center still needs empty backpacks for their youth as many have no way to carry their belongings.
MCCD is always looking for new ways to help the metro area community. For more information about MCCD, go to
