Be Love Vision

Be Love Community Free Pantry
Located in Grandville, Michigan

Be Love was started after Kathy DeGraw, founder, was invited to come and minister to a group of Christian businessmen.  Kathy was invited there to #belove and found herself leaving so loved upon tears were streaming down her face as she left for the day.  Following that meeting she was in a three day solitude time where the Lord imparted the vision for #belove.

The Be Love Community Free Pantry is operated by Ruach Ha'Kodesh AEC whose oversight is DeGraw Ministries (www.degrawministries.org), Kathy's founding non-profit 501c3 corporation.

Kathy's vision is to be love in every action to everyone.  She is so passionate about this vision that she travels the United States sharing the love of God to people on the streets, in the marketplace and to the homeless.  She believes firming in loving God loving people, serving God serving people.

The vision of the Be Love pantry is to provide a material natural need in which to lead to a spiritual encounter, Jesus.

We accomplish our vision by providing, shoes, small household items, bras, socks, homeless bags, kitchen items, linens, bedding, clothes and other basic necessities to the community.

The pantry is operated most Tuesday's and Thursday's out of the basement of the DeGraw home.  They are believing for the manifestation of their blessing, a building.  Meanwhile, each week the pantry operates on limited hours due to having to set it up and tear it down for other meetings in the DeGraw's basement.

Be Love started by word of mouth and Facebook groups.  It grew rapidly and still continues to expand.  

We currently provide:
Household and Clothing items
Christmas Gifts
Stocking Stuffers

If you have a larger donation please drop off during open hours or message Kathy for a drop off appointment.
