Season’s greetings from Michigan Scientific! The holiday season is often a time of reflection. It is a wonderful opportunity to “press pause” from busy schedules and reflect on all of the blessings 2018 has given us. It is also a time to think of our community members and give back to those who have given us so much.
Yet again, we were humbled by the generosity of our employees as we did some year-end fundraising. Our friends at the Milford facility fundraised money for the Community Sharing Outreach Center in Highland, Michigan. This 501(c)(3) Non-Profit Organization provides food, clothing, financial support and other services to struggling families in the community. An average of 700 men, women, and children receive assistance from Community Sharing each month. Organizations like this become increasingly important as temperatures begin to drop and the necessity for warm food and clothing increases.
The employees at our Charlevoix facility hosted a Fill a Bag with Food drive for local elementary school students. Many children who receive assistance for meals at school become worried about having enough food over the holiday recess. Over 34% of the students at the Charlevoix Elementary School needed assistance over break. Michigan Scientific was able to help put together 155 bags of food to distribute to the children in need!
Thank you to all employees in Milford and Charlevoix for their amazing generosity.
One of the joys of the holiday season is to also be able to thank our customers for their support. Our customers keep us at the forefront of innovation with exciting new applications.
From our families to yours, best wishes for a wonderful holiday season and a very happy new year!
