Non-Profit Partnerships

Working Together for a Better Tomorrow

Each year, our club selects four local non-profit organizations to support. We hold fundraisers, volunteer our time, and more. All of these outstanding organizations align with our core values and mission.

At the center of who we are is a desire to better the lives of those around us. Service is our main goal. If your mission sounds like ours and you are interested in becoming a non-profit partner, please contact us.

Blessings in a Backpack

Blessings in a Backpack mobilizes communities, individuals, and resources to provide food on the weekends for school-aged children across America who might otherwise go hungry.

The goal of this program is to keep children from knowing the struggle of not having access to proper food and water, and to remove barriers to academic success. When kids don’t have to worry about where their next meal is coming from, they start performing better academically.

Friends of Foster Kids

Friends of Foster Kids provides a “Christmas” for foster children in Macomb, Oakland and Wayne counties, who have been removed from their homes due to abuse or neglect and placed in temporary housing or shelters.

From Macomb County alone there are approximately 900 children in foster care each year. Many of these children have never experienced the joy of receiving a gift at Christmas. We’re happy to make a difference around the holidays!

Embracing Imperfections

Embracing Imperfections is a nonprofit organization focused on youth suicide awareness and prevention. Shandy Longcore, President and Founder, speaks to audiences across the country.

Shandy realizes how there is power and the opportunity to turn things around in connecting with another person. With her powerful words and personal story—her mission is to help people take action against suicide.

Kids on the Go

Kids on the Go is a pediatric non-profit program designed to provide children with special needs (ages 3-17 years) with physical, occupational, speech and recreational therapies both over the summer months and during the school year.

The mission of Kids on the Go is to recognize and facilitate the goals of children with special needs and to further develop their current skills through therapeutic and wellness programs for the children and their families.
