The Chronicle News Partners with Community Organizations to Feed Families and Bridge Digital Divide

On December 16, 2023, The Chronicle News partnered with Lansing Community Catalyst Corp., Transformation GEMS, and Believe Family Outreach for their Annual Food and Essentials distribution. The event was held at the office of Transformation GEMS (Gifted Entrepreneurs with Millionaire Status) located at 3333 S. Pennsylvania Ave, Lansing, Michigan.

More than three hundred and fifty dinner kits with various types of meat (from 1910 Food Market), sides, and nonperishables were loaded into cars, along with toys and nonperishable items. There was also a Coat Drive held simultaneously, inside of the Transformation GEMS office. Believe Family Outreach hosted the Coat giveaway.

The Chronicle also helped bridge the digital divide within Michigan by handing out ten Dell Chromebooks (Sponsored by Comcast) These laptops were distributed to new business owners and community members within Ingham and Wayne County.

With the help of community partners, sponsors, and volunteers, the Chronicle News was able to uphold a 25-year-old tradition of a holiday food distribution started by original Chronicle News Publisher Jay Price.

The Chronicle News would like to thank the volunteers, private donors, and supporters in the community. We would also like to give a special thank you to our generous sponsors ComcastYoung Chevrolet Cadillac Buick GMC Shaheen Chevrolet, and Transformation GEMS for helping make this event possible.
