Gordie, thank you so very much for this wonderful posting.ReplyDelete
Please also consider the Junior League of Flint. Junior Leagues across the country are 501 c 3 nonprofit charitable organizations that not only provide money to other charitable organizations in their communities but pair that money up with trained volunteers. As both a member of the Junior League (Nashville not Flint) and as a director of a nonprofit organization, I have seen - time and time again - how money to the Junior League is able to make a huge impact on the community. Not only do leagues help existing agencies, they generally are responsible for seeing needs in the community and addressing them through the creation agencies. Many of the children's hospitals, women's shelters, soup kitchens, and agencies like CASA and crisis organizations in this country (not to mention museums, children's theaters, and in the early part of the 20th century, Settlement Houses) were founded by Junior Leagues.
The contact information is: Junior League of Flint, 519 South Saginaw Street, Flint 48502. Phone: 810-238-3773.
Another great organization is Catholic Charities. The contact info for them is 901 Chippewa St. Flint, 48503. Phone 810-239-4412.
Thanks for the tips Gordie & DrDoom (great name by the way)!ReplyDelete
Gordy- thanks for adding these charities to your website. There was just an artical in the Flint Journal over the weekend about a woman from Chicago who wants to give back to Flint and had 'adopted' some families for Christmas. I need to find it and send it to you...it is right with the nostalgia of this wonderful website!ReplyDelete
