wow winter 2017 cover


Winter has arrived here in southeastern Michigan. Some of you love it, and some of you don’t. The reality of the situation is that it is here, it will be with us for a few months and there is not a whole lot we can do to change the weather. But there is an opportunity to make a difference.

With the holidays upon us, we all spend time thinking about the gifts we need to purchase for family and friends, the dinner plans we are making, the holiday parties to attend.  

Would you please take a moment to think about the people in our communities that are not as fortunate? The organizations listed below have made helping our communities their mission.  

Take the time to think about how you can help. There are many ways, from monies, to donations to volunteering to help at their locations.
