Spreading treats of thanks   

Unsung heroes often get overlooked in the day to day grind. Recently, volunteers spent a morning in the kitchen making delicious sweet treats to provide to employees at Consumers Energy and Great Lakes Energy. While laughing and singing along to the radio, the group was happy to show their appreciation and spread kindness through TrueNorth’s Baking All Together program. Each month, Baking All Together will make and deliver treats to show appreciation for everyday heroes in our community.

All Together
 promotes volunteerism and acts of kindness. Adults of all ages, with a focus on those 55+, are invited to be part of special interest groups that get together to do good in the community. Baking All Together meets twice a month and participants design program plans, deciding on monthly recipes and join forces as they prepare and then deliver treats to our local heroes! 

Interested community members can also be a part of Knitting All Together, a knitting and crocheting circle that hand-makes items to donate to local causes. Anyone interested in getting involved, whether seasoned crocheters or those looking to learn, can drop-in during circles held every Tuesday and Thursday.

All Together is made possible through support from the Fremont Area Community Foundation’s Bridging Generations Fund. If you or someone you know would like to become involved in giving back while building lasting connections with others, please contact Jackie Knight at TrueNorth at jknight@truenorthservices.org or (231) 924-0641.
