those in need
Sisters United of Detroit- Detroit, MI.
For the past several years, Sisters United of Detroit, a community based organization geared towards the betterment of those living in and around the city of Detroit, has cooked, catered, and provided a street barbeque for the homeless population in the area of MLK and Third streets. One of the ladies of GIVE Club™, helped support their Freedom Feed 2016 and with the additional support from the community, they provided and served ribs, rib tips, chicken wings, macaroni n' cheese, spaghetti, baked beans, green beans n' potatoes, cole slaw, watermelon, peach cobbler, pound cake, banana bread, beverages, good music, & FELLOWSHIP. It was nothing short of amazing!
GIVE Club, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, has devoted its energy to passionately advocating for the hungry, needy and politically under-represented members in the Metropolitan Detroit area.
Center For Hope- Flint, MI.
The ladies of GIVE Club™, along with their family and friends truly showed up and showed out during the month of June 2016. What started off as an idea between 6 women to help with the Flint Water Crisis, turned into a nice sized effort and delivery of 128 cases and several gallons of water to the Center for Hope Community Closet. Many thanks to all of you who supported, donated, and physically helped us in making this happen. A special thanks goes to Brandon Smith of U-Haul of Farmington for helping us sponsor our transportation. There is truly Unity in Community.
GLEANERS Food Bank- Warren, MI.
Some of the ladies of GIVE Club™ were able to volunteer at Gleaners for the 2016 #stampouthunger food drive. In a very short time, the four of us were able to pack up almost 2,000 lbs of food. It was such a rewarding experience.
Last year’s drive collected approximately 71 million pounds of non-perishable food that was left in bags next to postal customers’ mailboxes. It was the 12th consecutive year that letter carriers have collected more than 70 million pounds of food, and it brought the drive’s grand total to more than 1.4 billion pounds of food collected. We can't wait to see what the numbers are for 2016.
For the past 3 years, on the 3rd Saturday of October, GIVE Club and volunteers have passed out bags filled with food, hygiene items, socks, hats and gloves at the Tumaini Center of the Detroit Neighborhood Service Organization.
Each year, we have doubled our efforts in helping those experiencing homelessness and in 2018, we provided approximately 500 pairs of socks and 250 hygiene & food bags, and over 150 hats and gloves.
We're able to make a difference in our community with help from our generous friends, family, Kroger, and Better Made Chips who supported our fundraising & volunteer efforts; and for this, we THANK YOU!
Our goal is to establish a firmly grounded network of volunteers who work together to identify and remedy issues that hinder community growth and civic responsibility among people. GIVE Club will be successful when communities are engaged and work together to create solutions for sustainable change.
The Angel House- Redford, MI
The Angel House was founded by Karen Richeal Lewis. She was a victim of domestic violence by her former husband and she was inspired to start THE ANGEL HOUSE after her daughter, Tracy Renee, who was eight months pregnant with her granddaughter Ashton Makenna Rae, was murdered on March 22, 2014 due to domestic violence.
The Angel House assists abused women and their children by helping them to relocate from the reach of the abuser and they provide their female clientele with pre-funded debits cards so they can purchase daily necessities like food, clothing and toiletries.
