The results are IN! Our school supplies fundraiser for Orchards Childrens Services

On August 1st, we launched a 2-week fundraiser to help supply Orchards Children’s Services with backpacks stocked with school supplies for the children in the community that they serve.

We posted our blog here, sent out an email newsletter and posted on our social media page in hopes that the community would come together to help us purchase our goal of 100 backpacks and the supplies to go inside.

Within hours, we received donations from:

Bedrock, Metro Detroit Referees Association, The Colasanti Group, Leidal and Hart, Gibson Lewis, The Sheer Shop, Great Lakes Architectural Products, KVM Door Systems, Royal Roofing, Guideline Mechanical, Dixon Inc, and Curtis Glass Companies, – in addition to MiG’s Staff and the donation on behalf of our Company as donation matching.

In addition to our staff donating personal funds, they also donated a lot of time to planning and shopping, assembling backpacks and loading/transporting them.  This fundraiser was an amazing demonstration of teamwork and volunteering to help others.

So, how did we do? 

As a team, we were able to purchase and stock 300 backpacks with quality school supplies and donate an additional 150 school supplies packs for future use.  With the money we raised and donated above and beyond the cost of supplying these backpacks and supplies, we were able to cut a check to Orchards Children’s Services for an additional $1268. for them to use to help fund many of their other amazing programs.

This fundraiser was a complete SUCCESS and on behalf of each and every one of us here at #TeamMiG – we want to thank everyone who participated for their support and generosity.  We couldn’t have done this without you.

Please join MiG Construction in purchasing school supplies for the youth served by Orchard Children’s Services.

For nearly half a century, Orchards has continually helped improve the quality of life for abused, neglected and troubled children. Founded in 1962 by the National Council of Jewish Women-Greater Detroit Section, Orchards started as a small residential group home for Jewish boys with emotional impairments. Over the years, the agency expanded its services to include foster care, adoption, family preservation and specialized programs. These specialized programs include family training, therapy and support, birth family parent education and therapy, clinical services, in-home services and community outreach programs.

These school supplies and backpacks will be distributed to needy youth as they begin school – so they have everything they need to feel prepared for school.  No child should go without! Can you help?
