People with special needs often feel isolated, especially as children who may not be able to do all of the things other kids their age do. Friendship and inclusion are basic needs we all share; providing that experience...is something we want to support.
Ferndale, MI (PRWEB) January 17, 2016
Schrock Insurance Group, serving families of the northern Detroit metro area from offices in Ferndale and Farmington Hills, has announced the latest beneficiary of their ongoing community enrichment program. The current campaign raises funds for Friendship Circle of Michigan, a nonprofit organization which focuses on supportive programs encouraging friendship and inclusion for children, teens and young adults with special needs. Donations are now being accepted at: https://www.friendshipcircle.org/donate/.
Founded on the belief that none of us is complete unless all of us are included, Friendship Circle of Michigan began in 1994 with eight volunteers who met with four families in their homes every week. Today it provides assistance and support to 3000 individuals with special needs and their families, providing recreational, social, educational and vocational programming through a vast network of volunteers. Believing that within every person is a soul worthy of boundless love, Friendship Circle also provides support to individuals and families struggling with isolation, addiction and other family-related crises, working to promote an inclusive community valuing all people, regardless of the challenges they face.
“This is a perfect example of why we created our Community Program,” said Nicholas Schrock, owner of Schrock Insurance Group. “People with special needs often feel isolated, especially as children who may not be able to do all of the things other kids their age do. Friendship and inclusion are basic needs we all share; providing that experience for everyone, through Friendship Circle, is something we want to support.”
Schrock Insurance Group just recently launched their master charity program, of which the current campaign is part, pledging to select a new local organization, family or individual every 30-60 days to receive their support. The Schrock team is now hard at work promoting the campaign for Friendship Circle through its social media channels, email and text message communications, as well as through their monthly magazine. Our Hometown magazine is delivered to thousands of households in Ferndale, Farmington Hills and surrounding communities. Reserving a full page to feature the initiative and all the pertinent details, the electronic Flipbook version of the current issue may be accessed here: http://www.schrockinsurancegroup.com/Our-Hometown-Magazine_41.
