Strengthening Our Community
We co-sponsored the ninth annual event in February that brought together 61 organizations, 13 churches, over 400 volunteers, and 800 guests in a fun, one-day social services blitz. Guests gathered information, resources, and free services. Over 775 health screenings were provided that day.
United Way’s Day of Caring
Our 14th annual event engaged more than 1,700 volunteers, working at 115 different sites throughout the county, to trim, paint, clean, and help our neighbors who can’t do it for themselves. The IRS value to our community in volunteer time exceeded $137,500!
Through the Livingston County Hunger Council and community gardens, we grew more than 17,500 lbs. of fresh produce for local food pantries and programs. Fresher food means higher nutritional quality for Livingston County families needing emergency food access.
My Community Dental Clinic
We are thrilled to be part of a new nonprofit dental office providing comprehensive dental services, including Medicaid enrollees. This has been a long-term gap in this community. Livingston Co. Dept. of Public Health and St. Joseph Mercy Livingston are partnering to establish the clinic, with seed money from the remaining funds in the former Liv. Co. Health Plan.
Substance Abuse Initiative
In light of rising heroin and opiate-addiction concerns, several local substance abuse-related initiatives and prevention programs are gathering under one umbrella, with the goal of greater efficiency, effectiveness, and positive impact on the community.
