G.I.V.E.S. Provides Holiday Help to Michigan Families & Children
Three organizations partnered to provide clothing, gifts, and food for 45 metropolitan Detroit families in need during this holiday season.
On Thursday, Dec. 18, UAW Region 1A Director Rory Gamble hosted two community organizations, Michigan Welfare Rights and the Greater Detroit Agency for the Blind and Visually Impaired. Through his charity, Giving Is Very Extra Special (G.I.V.E.S.), toys, clothing, and food were provided to more than 43 families caring for 65 children. This is the sixth year G.I.V.E.S. has assisted underprivileged children and their families throughout the year and during the holidays.
The families were chosen by the community organizations based on need and income. Each child and their families’ items were specified and individualized. Twenty-five families were selected by the Greater Detroit Agency for the Blind and Visually Impaired and 17 families were selected by the Michigan Welfare Rights organization. The festivities will begin at 4 p.m. at UAW Region 1A, 9650 Telegraph Road at Wick Road in Taylor.
