Sailfish Swim Club Booster

Posted By: Sean Oxner (July 1, 2022)
Sailfish Swim Club is a new swim team and swim lesson program in Livonia - located at the old Livonia YMCA that is now called Livonia Athletic District (LAD). They have renovated the swimming pool and are offering swim lessons daily. They also have a swim team for those who can swim and want to learn more about swimming and compete.
Sailfish Swim Club is looking at offering free swim lessons to those families who cannot afford the classes. This would include water safety and drown prevention. This would be very helpful to the community as drowning is one of the leading causes of death in Michigan for children age 14 and younger, mostly during the warmer months of summer. A $1,000 will help up to 20 kids learn to swim and be safe around water for free.

Zelphia’s Community Kitchen

I’m voting for this non-profit in hopes that this $1000 will help them continue to get food for the families in their area who are food insecure. I admire the hard work being done by this group to follow their passion to help those in need.

Pajama Program

Posted By: Louise Derry (June 30, 2022)
Sleep is as important for children’s development as nutrition and exercise. Challenges like low family income, housing insecurity, and family instability make it difficult for many children to feel secure and comfortable at night, follow a bedtime routine, and get a good night’s sleep. This compromises their health, well-being, and school performance.

Pajama Program provides bedtime basics, sleep health education, and caring connections so children facing adversity can have a comforting bedtime routine that leads to healthy sleep. We surround children and their caregivers with the materials, information, and support to make bedtime better. Our vision is Good Nights for Good Days for all children, everywhere.

$1,000 will help us give local Head Start teachers the training and tools to deliver our two-week healthy sleep curriculum to preschoolers, and a connected sleep health presentation to parents/caregivers. Our teddy bears, pajamas, books, and reminder materials help students follow a bedtime routine at home.

Zelphia's Community Kitchen

In the little over 2 years since the inception of Zelphia's Community Kitchen thousands of families have been feed through their many distributions. With the recent addition of their senior box program, ZCK has been able to partner with Door Dash to reach some of the communities most vulnerable homebound clients. This $1000 gift would help ensure that not only can these programs continue but could be used for possible new endeavors. Thank you for considering Zelphia's Community Kitchen so that they can continue to do good!

Zelphia's has been travelling all over the southeast Michigan area, selflessly getting basic food staples to the hungry, free of charge. This is life-giving and so worthwhile!
