The Advance Staffing Solutions team from Southgate recently attended the Rotary Club of Wyandotte’s Annual Euchre Tournament! Proceeds went to benefit “Blessings In a Backpack” which is a program that helps those families meet their nutritional needs on weekends when the students don’t have access to the meals they receive at school.
A backpack is sent home each Friday, with a qualifying student, filled with food and returned on Monday to be refilled for the following Friday. Each backpack contains several pounds of foods such as tuna, peanut butter, macaroni and cheese, fruit juices, pastas, oatmeal, fruit bars, and soup. The food is provided at reduced costs through special arrangements with the Meijer grocery chain. If Meijer’s does not service a local community, then arrangements are made with other community providers.
