MLL Cares Program Spotlight: TWIGS
About four years ago now Will and I decided to implement the MLL 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 names of the charities that are referred to us go before our MLL 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 to the more weight it is given before the committee.
If you have a charity you would like to nominate, email your nomination to email@example.com!
This month’s recipient is: TWIGS
Our team had the opportunity to meet with Beth Read the Executive Director of TWIGS who shared with us her experience as a daughter of a cancer patient who wanted a way to honor her mom and help others going through similar circumstances and from there TWIGS was born.
TWIGS stands for To Work In Grateful Service by helping cancer patients take care of things like yard work, rides to appointments, house cleaning, running errands and picking up of prescriptions so that they can spend more time with loved ones.
TWIGS works in partnership with both Sparrow and McLaren hospitals and serve both Ingham and Eaton counties. They’ve helped 20 families and have done over 200 hours of service for those in need. We were excited that we were able to meet with them on the 2 year birthday of their 501c3 status!
Thank you, Beth, for sharing your story with us and for helping our local community!
