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.
