Over the last few weeks, RepairClinic staff filled donation boxes with school supplies from pencils and pens to folders and notebooks and art supplies.
Today, RepairClinic staff filled 28 backpacks with these supplies and will deliver the backpacks to Operation: Kid Equip, a program of the Michigan Friends of Education. This non-profit organization helps hundreds of thousands of children and teachers in need every year throughout metro Detroit and across Michigan.
These efforts were coordinated by RepairClinic’s Community Outreach group, which includes dozens of RepairClinic staffers who support local and national non-profit organizations with volunteerism and fundraising outside of their RepairClinic work.
Earlier this year, we raised nearly $7,000 for the American Cancer Society. 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.
