With the help of the Northville Stallions & Colts Cheerleaders, we will be conducting a clothing drive. We will be asking for clothing donations and the juniors will help sort clothing by gender and size. Northville Civic Concern families will be able to select items for their families. So as you are cleaning out closets and dressers for the new school year, please consider this opportunity!
Project Night Night
Project Night Night donates over 25,000 Night Night Packages each year, free of charge, to homeless children who need childhood essentials to feel secure, cozy, ready to learn, and significant. Each Night Night Package contains a new security blanket, an age-appropriate children's book, and a stuffed animal -- all nestled inside of a new canvas tote bag. By providing objects of reliable comfort, Project Night Night reduces trauma and advances the emotional and cognitive well-being of the children they serve.
As a service project, we will be building night packages for children in our area.
Membership & Financials
We are officially a 501(c)(3)!!! All money donated thus far (including dues) are tax deductible. Also, Company Match will be available, including dues, so if your company offers that, please consider matching for MSL!
Membership Renewal info will be coming soon, so be on the lookout for a letter regarding that in the next month. Going forward, renewals will take place in the month you signed up.
