Backpack Drive- Volunteers Needed!

MSL will be providing 100 filled backpacks to Civic Concern this year. We will be partnering with Ward Church in order to get this done. Each bag costs $20 including supplies.

Volunteers are needed to help with setting up and packing for the drive at Ward on August 4th and 5th. Please use the following link to sign up:

We really need volunteers this week to pick up supplies from Wal Mart for the backpack drive. Please use the following link to sign up:

We will also need volunteers to help with delivering the backpacks to Civic Concern later in August.

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

Thank you to all that participated in our 3rd Annual Kickball Tournament! The event was a success despite the insane rain that day. We were able to move the event inside to the Total Sports Complex in Wixom. The best part was that we raised over $12k! Congratulations to Team Patti Mullen for the win!

One last thing (or two)...

As always, If anyone has an idea for a service project or a local cause in need, please contact us.

We are currently looking into how we can assist Northville New Hope (grief support) and Northville Youth Assistance in the near future.
