WE STAND WITH OUR COMMUNITY
Our team meets daily with individuals who have experienced unimaginable tragedies and are left in vulnerable positions. We want to lift up those in our community who are needlessly suffering.
OUR COMMITMENT TO DO MORE
Many groups are already making a difference in our community – and we want to help. We are donating to non profit organizations that deliver immediate aid to disadvantaged individuals and groups. Each chosen charity will be carefully researched to ensure our proceeds are going directly to those in need. Is there a cause close to your heart or a group you see positively impacting people who are struggling? Help us promote their work.
If you know of a charity you would like us to consider send us an email at [email protected]
“Our duty to help people extends far beyond the walls of the courtroom. People are facing immeasurable hardships in our communities and we need to show up for them in more ways than one.”
– Bob Giroux

Foundation for Saline Area Schools
Ms. Harris is kind, patient, and really engages her students. First grade can be tough for so many reasons and Ms. Harris does a wonderful job making sure each student is learning and having fun. “It’s mind blowing to me that a child comes into first grade and can’t read, and by the end, they are not only reading but doing so confidently,” said Ms. Harris’ nominator. We applaud Ms. Harris for her dedication to these little people and the difference she makes in their lives and thus the difference she makes in the Ann Arbor community.
