Milan Seniors for Healthy Living

Posted By: Jennifer Michalak (August 23, 2016)
Milan Seniors for Healthy Living is a senior activity center committed to providing activities, programs, services, and referrals designed to enhance quality of life and encourage aging with independence and dignity in the Milan, MI area. MSHL has three arms: senior activity center, transportation service, and home delivered meals.

Our immediate need is finding a sponsor for a mental health support group for seniors. Should we obtain the financial support, the funds would allow a PhD Gerontologist-Psychiatrist to facilitate the group. She would teach coping and life skills to better respond to life changes and use empowerment to improve quality of life.

Thank you for your time and consideration.

10u Canton Cardinals

Posted By: Ron Asaro (August 23, 2016)
As the Head coach of the 10u Canton Cardinals Travel Baseball team, we are in our second year and can tell you first hand it is very important to practice, practice, practice. Their are numerous teams that are very good and to compete with those teams we have to get better through more practice and more equipment. The good which the $1000 would do would be to get more training and practice during the off season at indoor facilities and to get some better/ more equipment going forward. To not only teach baseball but to watch the growth and the improvement of our kids the first season is priceless and to have the opportunity of your donation would be greatly appreciated and would help in our development of our players not only in baseball but in life lessons as well. I appreciate your consideration in this matter. Thank you.

Ladies Ancient Order of Hibernians

Posted By: Barbara Weir (August 23, 2016)
The Ladies Ancient Order of Hibernians is devoted to works of charity in our communities. Each year we host an event for First Step, the Wayne County counseling and shelter program for victims of domestic violence and sexual assault. The Chocolate Affair raises funds for the playground and programs at First Step. In addition,the LAOH assists local food pantries, clothing banks,and shelter programs throughout Wayne County. We recently provided a new refrigerator to a Senior citizen without one. She was storing her husband's insulin in the snow! The group also raised money and provided funeral and luncheon expenses for an elderly man. We could do a LOT of good with a donation from the Credit Union! Thanks you for considering us!

Alpena Baby Pantry

Posted By: Kim Beaubien (August 22, 2016)
I take my grandson's mother to the Alpena Baby Pantry because his mother is only working part-time. It is open once a month to families to get those diapers, formula, wipes, lotion, soap for children from preemies to size 4 clothing upon request. I see many families come and go throughout that day. The smiles and the remarks of how they had no money for those things and didn't know what they would have done. They also sometimes have a toy or a book to pick. There are a lot of young children in our community so the Baby Pantry existence is of great importance. They rely on monetary and good used or new material donations. It is run by volunteers. Anyone can come who are experiencing financially tough times. The $1000.00 would allow them to purchase the items needed.

Christ the King Catholic School

Christ the King has partnered with the Superhero Training Academy to empower the positive creativity of students in their school. The students channel their creativity in their own lives, making them leaders within the school and in their communities. They learn practical applications of the four core values of fortitude, wisdom, compassion, and joy. The children participate in character study and development, creative thinking, art and design. They also learn important life skills or "superpowers." The creative team building and action projects that take place through this endeavor are an excellent way to empower our youth to feel more confident, embrace new experiences, and develop both interpersonal and interpersonal strength. This unique program is based in the Brightmoor and surrounding areas of Detroit. The tools that this program provides are able to be used for years to come.
