As the holidays draw closer, the common theme of giving a lending hand does as well. There are many fantastic events coming up in Harbor Country that promise to bring a great time as well as the fulfilling feeling of lending a charitable hand.
The Help for Southwest Michigan Advocacy Center is all about helping the community. As a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, Help for Southwest Michigan is entirely volunteer based and aims to assist residents in becoming self-sufficient by using the resources the organization offers them. Anyone is welcome to volunteer his or her time, services, talents or financial funds to the organization – there is no political or religious affiliation.
There is a wide range of resources made available to the public through the organization’s website, Help4SWMI.org. They offer an alphabetical directory making it simple for community members to find the services they seek. Useful resources include help furthering education, animal aid, support fighting against substance abuse, medical assistance, senior care and much more. For those who wish to volunteer their time to those in need, there is also a full list of volunteer services to participate in.
Charity is a large part of what makes a community tick. Without the good nature of our neighbors, so much of the services and resources we have at our disposal would not be available to us. If you live in Harbor Country or wish to visit for some holiday shopping, relax with local winetasting or just a romantic getaway, and wish to contribute to a charitable cause this holiday season – we have the perfect event for you.
