News Fundraising for a good cause

Published on May 14th, 2014 | by Staff


RepairClinic staffers raise funds to fight cancer

Here at RepairClinic, we love spring for:

  • The melting of the snow and the ice
  • Opportunity to help people fix their outdoor power equipment.
  • And especially, fundraising for the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life.

Since January, nearly all (maybe even all!) of RepairClinic’s 135 staff members have supported the efforts through donations and volunteering.

Dozens of staffers baked cookies, pies and other sweet treats for baked good sales. We were happy to provide cash donations to enjoy these mid-afternoon treats.


RepairClinic Customer Care Representative Rachel Skedzielewski shows off the delicious (and mega!) cookies she brought for the baked goods sale.


RepairClinic Customer Care Supervisor Ray Franges baked pies from scratch. They were a hit.

Bowling for a good cause

Last week, our bowling fundraiser brought RC staffers and their friends and family together for fun – and lots of fundraising.

Over the last few months, RepairClinic staffers contacted local businesses and organizations for auction donations. At the bowling event, many baskets brought in a considerable amount of donations.


RC staffer Brittany Kay enjoyed bowling with her colleagues and friends.



Customer Care Rep Tiffany Arno won a Michigan State University fan gear basket.


These fundraising efforts were led by RepairClinic’s Outreach, a group of staffers dedicated to making a positive impact, locally and nationally.

Fundraising for Relay for Life is just one of the many activities and good works RepairClinic’s Outreach group is involved with every year.

We also regularly fill the pantry shelves at Hope Clinic, a local non-profit organization that supports families in our community through . Last year, we made the holiday celebrations brighter for several families in need, fundraised to support local animals and shelters, planted 70 trees in Detroit – among many other activities.
