Last year we had so much fun, and made such a big difference!

Thank you to everyone who helped us raise over $114,000 for
The Salvation Army Staples Family Center in 2014!

Because of the 2014 Festive Affair, 22 families in need have
graduated from The Salvation Army Staples Family Center
and found a place to hang their hats.

Thank you for helping us end homelessness and encourage
these local veterans and families to thrive in our community!
We are delighted to learn that these Staples Family Center
graduates are now employed, self-sufficient, and in some
cases continuing with their education though our partnership
with Washtenaw Community College, thanks to your generosity.
Their children are now able to grow up in a strong, positive and
supportive family environment.

We hope to see you again at The Festive Affair - celebrating
24 years of raising up families in need as they work toward brighter
futures and hope to soon hang their hats in a home of their own.
