July 2019 Winner: Metro Detroit Share

Congratulations to our July Charitable Giving Contest Winner Metro Detroit Share! Metro Detroit Share provides support to families who endure the loss of a baby during pregnancy or infancy. They offer support online, in meetings and a variety of other services. 1 in 4 pregnancies unfortunately end in loss.

Angie from MDS educated our team and gave us a few helpful pieces of information: Simply say you are sorry to a family who have experienced loss. Bring them meals, offer to take care of their errands/chores & offer an ear to listen. We encourage you to like their page & share them as a resource to anyone who may need it.

January 2019 Winner: In Memory Of Community Garden

This morning we presented our January Charitable Giving winner, In Memory Of Community Garden, with a check for $500. The Garden is in Detroit just outside of Dearborn & Dearborn Hts and was started four years ago after the couple were greeted by neighbors in need of food & shelter for their family. These neighbors didn't ask for money, they asked for help with basic essentials to live. From that point the couple took action & today are continuing to grow and provide for their community. The last few years 100% of what they have grown has been given 100% back to the community. We are grateful to have the opportunity to learn more about & support this cause. #givingback #demmerdifference
