JCares

Posted By: Jane Summers (July 1, 2022)
Jcares is a wonderful organization ran by two ladies who are dedicated to serving their community. Their selflessness and hard work has resulted in impacting the lives of hundreds of families in our community. Their hard work and dedication to our community doesn't go unnoticed and $1,000 would help ensure they are able to continue to do their work.

JCares

JCares is a family run non-profit serving the community through free food distributions, school outreach assistance, and annual holiday events for local homeless shelters. The dedication to their community has resulted in providing free groceries and assistance to over 10,000 families in the past year. Being selected as a recipient for CFCU Summer of Sharing would allow them to continue to meet the needs in our community and expand their reach to more families.

Veterans of Foreign War Auxiliary to Post 4012 Northville

Posted By: Kathy Marshall (July 1, 2022)
As a Veteran non-profit organization, we work to raise money so that we can support needy Veterans and families throughout the year. We provide food, clothing, and household goods many times per year. We especially focus on giving between 10 and 20 Veteran families a wonderful Thanksgiving and Christmas providing complete food each holiday. At Christmas we provide gifts for each member of the family. These gifts are hand picked items for each individual. We support our Veterans Hospital patients, providing socks, shirts and gift cards so they can purchase items from the Canteen. Throughout the year, we do many fundraisers so we can provide as much comfort as possible for as many Veterans as possible. We support National Home (a community for needy Veterans) as well as Camp Trotter (a camp for children here in Michigan). Thank you for your assistance.

Girls on the Run of Greater Detroit

Posted By: Kate Lynch (July 1, 2022)
Girls on the Run is a transformational physical activity based youth development program for girls in 3rd-8th grade. We inspire girls to be joyful, healthy and confident using a fun curriculum which creatively integrates running.

Over the past two years, we have served over 2,500 kids in the Greater Detroit area and hope to extend our reach even more. In this time of isolation, Girls on the Run has provided a community and connection to young girls all while being healthy and fun!

Each GOTR girl sets a goal at the beginning of the season and completes a non competitive 5k at the end of the year! Many girls are provided running shoes and clothes and each child is given a healthy snack every practice! In short, Girls on the Run is SO MUCH FUN!

Muir Middle Band Program

Posted By: Jennifer Ginther (July 1, 2022)
I’m nominating the Muir Middle School Band Program led by Ms Kristin Blanchard because they do so much for the seniors in our community. The students ‘toured’ several local senior living places and also had them come into the school to participate in performances. The students performed, interacted with, and most importantly, spread the joy and love through music education.. The bonds formed through music have enabled them to see how much it can influence positive change, healing, inclusion, advocacy, and understanding and acceptance. The $1000 award will benefit the Muir MS Band by enabling students to continue to make community connections and advocate to positively impact others through music. The award would enhance, promote, and allow students to continue the mission to honor our community members through music. $1000 would cover required transportation costs for Muir Band members and equipment to performance sites. Thank you for your consideration.
