Wolverine Chapter Contributes to Kids in Need!
Wolverine Chapter #1332 presented checks to various charity organizations at the February chapter meeting. Representatives from Wigs for Kids, Kids on the Go and Angels of Hope each received a check for $1,000 and took a few minutes to describe how that money will be used for each of their programs. Our contributions will help children in the metro Detroit area who are faced with challenges such as autism, hair loss caused by childrens' diseases and financial disparity.
In total the chapter contributed $13,000 to children's charity organizations for 2016. More then half of this money was generated through riding activities and events without any financial impact to the chapter or our members. Examples of this are bike washes, picnic outings and local restaurants contributing a percentage of sales from a dinner ride. The remainder was raised during our annual collection drive in November. It is important to note that none of the donated monies come from general Chapter finances or member dues. None of this happens without the help of volunteers to coordinate these activities and work with local businesses. THANK YOU!
