Alagasco Nonprofit Partner Profile: Greater Birmingham Ministries (GBM)

Categories: In the Community

When one of Alagasco’s nonprofit partners, Greater Birmingham Ministries, told us they wanted to collect 45,000 items in celebration of their 45th year of providing emergency services to people in need, there was no question, we wanted to help.

45000 food itemsWhile our employees are dedicated to giving back to our communities and helping organizations like GBM, we know so many of our customers want to give back and help as well. Here’s a little information about GBM, its mission and how we can help them reach their 45,000 goal.

WHO: Greater Birmingham Ministries is a multi-faith, multi-racial organization that provides emergency services for people in need and works toward systemic change efforts to build a strong, supportive, engaged community and pursue a more just society for all people.

WHAT SERVICES: GBM distributes bags of groceries from its Food Pantry every week to eligible families and seniors in need.

It also provides free basic clothing as well as professional attire, school uniforms and personal hygiene products to anyone in need through its Clothes Closet.

GBM also assists 16 families in need with utility, housing and medical costs each month.

WISHLIST: GBM is celebrating its 45th year in operation, and to commemorate that anniversary, the agency wants to collect 45,000 food items for its Food Pantry.

The group also regularly collects clothing of all sizes and toiletries.
