Kids kicking cancer

Posted By: Sarah Vincenzetti (July 1, 2022)
My daughter Leah has a brain tumor. Before we found kids kicking cancer leah would have to get MRI and it would take up to 4 people to hold her down. Kids kicking cancer has taught her power breathing, Leah now has no one hold her down and she takes control of herself. Kids kicking cancer connects with the kids and helps them to be their best self! We are so thankful for kids kicking cancer!

St. Genevieve-St. Maurice Catholic Parish

Posted By: Phyllis Chudzinski (July 1, 2022)
Since the pandemic, St. Genevieve-St. Maurice parish, has seen increasing numbers of people in circumstances preventing them from living functional lives. We assist on all levels. With your generous donation we could help the increasing number of homeless in our neighborhood; assist with rent, utilities, vehicle repairs and healing the grief stricken. Our ability to assist would be greatly increased if we had a quiet place of refuge, a resource kiosk, reading material, and a trained bereavement team.
Government resources are available but frustrating to obtain because of paperwork/requirements. As a church, people come because we are compassionate, providing a listening ear, calming a traumatic situation. Our help is measured by individual thanks, not regulations. We have a beautiful, peaceful campus and its amazing how those seeking help find us, leaving with renewed hope, less frustrated, a little less encumbered financially, and belief they can deal with their life's difficulties.

A simple thank you for highlighting so many different nonprofits in our community, it has provided us with ideas on how to further our reach in the community.

The reach of your donations will never be known as all of these great organizations do what they do, it takes a village to maintain and make a community thrive.

Thanks for all you do and for considering our Club.

Sterling Heights Lions Club

Posted By: Dr Mary Welsh (July 1, 2022)
The Sterling Heights Lions Club helps many nonprofits and individuals in our community. We were recently asked to help Play Place for autistic kids and those with disabilities to build a laundry room where they could teach students how to perform these everyday life skills.

The Sterling Heights Lions Club has contacted ABC Warehouse to get a washer and dryer at cost, plus installation, and some towels, wash rags, and detergent, they need $1000 to make this opportunity happen.

Please consider $1000 donation and the Lions will pick up and install the machines for Play Place and purchase the towels, rags, and detergent.

Help us make it happen for these kids and support Executive Director Shell Jones in making a comfortable, safe, and good environment for learning and play for these kids and young adults to the age of 26.

Thanks for your consideration

Warriors for Warriors

Posted By: Bryan Feldpausch (July 1, 2022)
Warriors for Warriors raises money to fight cancer with the Walled Lake Western High School students. A lot of the fundraising occurs through athletic events, but the group continues to evolve. Last year they raised over $40,000. Their annual Pink Out football game is a huge event that pulls the whole community together. Nobody on the committee gets paid. Everyone on the committee is a volunteer and does it to give back. It is an incredible cause.
