Thank you to these out going Board members who helped start Step Up Northern Michigan back in April of 2016. We have grown to seven locations with our efforts to battle food insecurity and have greatly supported the students and staff at T C High School for the last 6 1/2 years. We wish Rebecca Galsterer, Jennifer McDowell Weekly, Krissy Kernan and Erin Simon the best as they move on to other personal and professional endeavors! Thank you!
It was a nice surprise to receive some very nice thank you cards from the students at Traverse City High School!
We can’t wait to have the students at TC High School have the opportunity to shop for themselves or family members this holiday season. Due to many volunteer hours and generous donors, we have created a holiday “Santa’s workshop” for these students to bring a bit of holiday cheer into their lives! Feel free to sign up to help 🙂 <a href=”https://www.signupgenius.com/go/20F0C44A9AA2DAAF85-staffing” target=”_blank”><img src=”https://images.signupgenius.com/images/sign-up-now1.gif” width=”150″ height=”90″ border=”0″ alt=”Sign Up!”></a>
Thank you for providing 100 Thanksgiving baskets to be shared with the Northwest Food Coalition members . Step Up Northern Michigan was grateful to receive 10 of these baskets to be shared with students at Traverse City High School! Happy Thanksgiving!
The students at Traverse City High School were surprised with another cart full of love!
The hints of Spring are all around us and Spring Break will soon be under way for many of our school age youth. Not all families are planning a fun warm weather get away this year or any years in the past. Imagine being a young person that may really rely on school for not only a safe place, but for your connections to friends, teachers, breakfast and lunch. Forty percent of our local families are struggling financially and are food insecure. Food insecurity is a real category, and it means that families must make the hard decisions to pay a utility bill or car payment before they can purchase food for their families. We at Step Up Northern Michigan do our best to provide access to quality food to our At-Risk youth in our area and we thank all of our wonderful year- round supporters! Thank you!
