Adopt a Family 2019

Northwest Adopt a Family Thank You


Northwest Community Schools would like to thank the Mountie Nation - students, staff, businesses, and community members - who very generously helped with our annual Adopt-a-Family program.


This is what community LOVE looks like in the Mountie Nation! This year was incredibly successful. We collected food and toiletry items for 65 families, 45 of those families also received clothing, books and toys for every school age and younger child. An additional 31 families were gifted full holiday meals for their families. Your generous help will touch more than 170 school aged (or younger) children in the Mountie Nation. We greatly appreciate anyone who donated to and volunteered with our program.


Thank you to each of our school buildings, The First Church of the Nazarene, Hankerd Hills, Klavon’s, Klavon’s 2, and the Lost Shoe for hosting giving trees.


A very special thank you to MANY local families and MANY NW Staff members and their families, the Hankerd Hills’ ladies golf league, the Lost Shoes’ pool leagues and the Lost Shoe, the Jackson Area Antique Tractor Club, the Zion United Methodist Church’s Women, NWHS’s Vocal Dimension and Serenade! Choir programs, Peak Manufacturing Staff, Henry Ford Allegiance Family Medicine North Region, the NW PTO, the American Legion Post 29, the NWHS National Honor Society, the NWHS Economics class, the NWHS STEM program, several other classes at NWHS, Huff Auto Group, Extreme Dodge, Avery Oil & Propane, Orthopedic Rehab Associates PC, multiple departments at Consumer’s Energy, Willis & Jurasek, and Crossroads Gas Station for their very generous donations, including adopting several families.


Thank you to so many students, families, staff and community members who grabbed ornaments from the trees, made monetary donations, helped sort and write ornaments, wrapped presents and so much more. One toothbrush, one box of mac and cheese, one toy, and one book at a time – our community rallied together to make the holidays brighter for 65 families in our district. We are blessed to live in a community filled with love and compassion for our neighbors. It is such a blessing to be able to count on the spirit of kindness in our community. Thank you very much for instilling the spirit of giving in our community and for being an inspiration to all.


WE ARE NORTHWEST!


Sincerely, Marnie Hade
