My heart goes out to our neighbors in Oxford. Kids have senselessly been taken from us. Please keep them, their friends, and their families in your thoughts. ❤️
In honor of the students at Oxford High School, and it being #GivingTuesday, I have chosen to support Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America today.
Please also support the following local organizations that I've chosen to support this Giving Tuesday!
The Michigan Military Technical Historical Society is right here in our community, and tells the story of our fellow Michiganders and their contribution to the defense of democracy. You are bound to run into previous Councilwoman Wendy Richardson when visiting!
Macomb County Habitat for Humanity serves Eastpointe residents by providing housing (and our City has provided tax reverted homes for them to rehab) (and Pastor Kevin Lancaster is now a board member!) and Care House of Macomb County - the Macomb County Child Advocacy Center, Inc. serves the children of Eastpointe when they are victims of sexual or physical abuse. Previous Mayor Accavitti is Care House's current Board of Directors President.
I have also chosen to support an Eastpointe Community Schools (I'm a graduate!) classroom on Donors Choose (https://www.donorschoose.org/project/bellview-elementary-shooting-star-ukulel/5973049/), as well as Macomb County Pride, an organization that supports the LGBTQ community in our County.
