Meet Scott Christie

Director of Donor Engagement, North Kent Connect

Meet Scott Christie, Director of Donor Engagement at North Kent Connect. He works with churches, schools, individuals, and businesses that want to be involved with the mission of NKC.

Some of you may recognize him from his time serving on various boards and committees in Sparta, or you might have crossed paths in his previous outside sales role. You can find Scott at car shows in Cedar Springs, Sparta, and Alpine Township during the summer, out riding his bike on the many trails in northern Kent County, or taking a walk with his dog, Amos.

Scott is here to answer any questions you have about starting a food drive, processing a monthly gift, or just finding out what’s going on at North Kent Connect. You can reach him at (616) 866-3478, ext. 356, or

“We have been blessed.”

“We don’t need our stimulus check” is something we’ve been hearing this year from NKC supporters.

Claire Guisfredi, our Executive Director, recently received this nice note…

The families we serve in northern Kent County are struggling with the high cost of rent and propane, dealing with the challenges of virtual schooling while juggling a job or two, and trying to make ends meet with wages that don’t cover basic living expenses. That’s when North Kent Connect steps in. With your generosity, we assist families in northern Kent County with basic needs, economic independence, and resources to move forward and better their lives.

The need is continuing well into the new year. Thank you for helping us do this important work!
