Thank you to Isabella Bank staff for volunteering at our commodities warehouse for their Compassion into Action day.
By the end of the day, the volunteers packed 1008 food boxes, sorted 14 pallets of donations, and assembled 186 bags of personal needs items!
We couldn’t do what we do without volunteers, and the Isabella bank crew did an amazing job helping us continue to deliver our commodities programs.
For today's community spotlight, we'd like to thank Family Fun Princesses for donating her time and talents for a virtual story time with our Early Head Start and Head Start children!
The Ice Queen read, sang, and interacted with the children, taking the time to speak with each child as well as answering questions.
Thank you Family Fun Princesses for helping to instill a love of reading in our Head Start and Early Head Start children!
Congratulations to our tax preparation volunteers for helping our program be recognized with an Honorable Mention in Rural Initiatives for our efforts to bring our tax preparation services to the rural areas in our counties!
In the recent IRS VITA (Volunteer Income Tax Assistance) Partner Recognition Ceremony, our program was one of twenty-two partners from the thousands nationwide to receive an Honorable Mention in this category, and one of only two Michigan VITA partners to receive recognition in any category.
We would like to give a special thank you to our volunteers who make this program what it is, especially this year when the season ended differently than we had hoped or planned. We owe so much to our volunteers, who give this program their time and support, and thank you all for your contributions.

We have been incredibly moved by so many coming together to help their neighbors in need with everything going on, and these folks are a stellar example of that!
From Southern Baptist Disaster Relief who obtained the sanitizer and water to Sunrise Church of Midland who stored it to Terry Wilson who brought his forklift to load these items onto our truck so we could transport them to aid in our relief efforts in Gladwin, they have all truly made a difference in their community.
