For the past 14 or 15 years I’ve organized a shopping trip for kids from Avondale Youth Assistance for the Morning Optimist Club of Auburn Hills. We’ve been assisted by K-Mart, Target and for the last several years, Meijers. Adults help kids shop for their families using funds donated by the store and club. Rotary Club has gotten in on the fun and has helped us with funds and volunteers. Police officers from our department have helped us the last few years too.
I wanted to share with you a video of our trip.
Thanks to Steve Sucher of the Avondale Board of Education who provided the video. And thanks to all the volunteers and Meijers. You made things a little brighter for some kids and families by giving up a few hours on a Satruday morning. It is part of what makes this such a great community.
