ML&L Cares Program Spotlight: Child and Family Charities (CFC)
About three years ago now Will and I decided to implement the ML&L Cares: Trusted Choice for Charities program. What is this? Our agency will donate $500 each month to a local area non-profit that is referred to us by YOU our clients. Just email firstname.lastname@example.org with the name of the charity, a quick description and contact information for the charity.
The name of the charities that are referred to us go before our ML&L Charity committee that consists of a team member from our service, sales and management team and they select one recipient each month. The charities that were not selected stay on our list for the following month. The more times the same charity is referred the more weight it is given before the committee.
This month’s recipient is: Child and Family Charities (CFC) Fill the Backpack Drive
June 1-August 1, 2021 CFC is holding a Fill the Backpack Drive. They want to make sure that every child has the opportunity to succeed by providing them with all the school supplies they will need! They are accepting donations of a sturdy, heavy duty backpacks and various school supplies. To help please email CFCevents@childandfamily.org! We couldn’t be more excited to help be a part of such a great drive to help our area children!
