Troy is an exceedingly generous community. We are abundantly populated with not-for-profit organizations that serve, educate, train, heal and restore, and they do it with your generous contributions of time, support and funding.
So, we asked some of our readers, “Who is your favorite nonprofit – and why?” The recommendations we received range from helping underserved children to caring for those touched by the epidemic of suicide.
Along the way, we heard about so many more you support. Boys & Girls Club of Troy. Chaldean Community Foundation. American Lung Association. Easterseals MORC. Families Against Narcotics. Disability Network Eastern Michigan. Arab American and Chaldean Council. And so many more.
These are just a few of the organizations that deserve our support this year – and, as we approach the holidays, with year-end financial gifts.
Who's your favorite nonprofit? Let us know on Facebook or Instagram (@troycitylifestyle).
Meanwhile, here are a few of our readers' favorites!
“This is my favorite charity. Their mission is to empower communities to prevent suicide and offer hope and healing to survivors. They offer support to survivors through the conference and support groups. Kevin’s Song has personally helped me and other families in Troy after the loss of loved ones by suicide.” – Ann Percy (Ann Percy State Farm Insurance)
Children's Hospital of Michigan
“We love Children’s Hospital of Michigan. Not only are they in Troy, but it’s all about children. We’re not the only ones. Last September, during Pediatric Cancer Awareness Month, many people across Troy came together to collect the most-requested item from the children at Children's Hospital – Squishmallows! These are soft and cuddly, and they comfort pediatric patients as they go through care at the hospital.” – Harnisha Shah (FYZICAL Therapy & Balance Center)
The Children's Center
“The Children’s Center is a nonprofit in Detroit that provides children with clinical, behavioral and academic support, plus emergency crisis care. And they often counsel children who need a safe, comfortable environment to open up. So, our team adopted a flower garden at the center. We cleared out the area, sketched out a plan for the various flowers and plants, and we’ll begin planting soon.” – Janet Pasco (Horizon Bank)
