Emergency Relief Fund Update:
Thanks to our membership dues, which support our emergency relief fund, we were able to help a local Vietnam veteran with food, gas cards, utility bill support, and essential household items. We are very proud to help someone that served our country.
We recently assisted a young man with a portion of his rent. He is a hard worker and couldn't make ends meet last month.
MSL provided linens for a family that has a sick parent. We provided towels, sheets, and blankets for this family in need.
Your membership dues and donations have made this possible. Thank you!
Kickball Tournament Update
One last thing (or two)...
We are currently looking into how we can assist Northville New Hope (grief support) and Northville Youth Assistance in the near future.
