Giving Hope Spring Social Update

Giving Hope Spring Social Update

The Giving Hope Board would like to wish all of our members a very Happy Spring!

Our Pizza Party and Game Night at Buddy's Pizza was a success!

Kyle and Laura from Growth Works talked to us about all of the progrmas they offer to area pre-teens and families. What started out as an intervention program to help kids who were getting in trouble in Kellog Park in Plymouth has grown into an organization that works with local schools, police departments and other municipalities to provide a variety of services. They have four locations - Plymouth, Canton, Livonia and Garden City and help with Substance Abuse Treatment, Juvenile Justice and other Family Services. 

Thank you to Raeann Neil and the Special Events Committee for planning such a fun night!

Welcome New Members!

Giving Hope has the honor of welcoming two new members!

Diane Galante & Julie Whipple

Welcome into our Circle of Giving, Ladies!

A big Thank You to Lisa Krahel who has agreed to become a "member at large" on the Giving Hope advisory board!
