October 2018 Newsletter
Dear supporters,

We have had a very busy summer at MSL. There were many families in our community that needed us to get them through a difficult time. We helped pay rent, utilities, 6th grade camp, car repairs and purchased other essential items. Each day we realize how important our work in the community is and we couldn't do it without you. As the holiday season approaches, please consider Main Street League when planning an event or making an end of year donation. The more we raise, the more good we can put into our community and continue to "Uplift or community from within."

Allstate Helping Hands Grant
Bruce & Amy Martin
We are so thankful for the support of the Bruce Martin Allstate Agency. They sponsored our Back To School initiative this year with a $5000 grant from Allstate! We were able to provide 100 backpacks filled with supplies and 100 new pairs of shoes to our local school children. They took a big burden off of so many parents! Thank you!

Blessings In A Backpack- Northville

Great news! This awesome program is coming to Northville thanks to Michelle Lapshan.

Blessings in a Backpack mobilizes communities, individuals, and resources to provide food on the weekends for elementary school children across America who might otherwise go hungry.

As little as $100 feeds one child on the weekends for one 38-week school year through the Blessings in a Backpack program.

The Results: Nourished Kids Ready to Learn.

MSL is proud to get them started with a $1,000 donation. We hope you will consider volunteering and/or helping them financially too!
