Each year, M3 Group staff collectively decides one place where we’d like to focus our attention for the holidays
In the past, we’ve taken care of Christmas wish lists for families. Last year, we concentrated our efforts on the forgotten population: seniors living in assisted and memory care units.
This year, we are proud to announce that we’re working in conjunction with the Davies Project to provide books for children.
The Davies Project provides free, round-trip rides to medical appointments for children facing serious health care challenges. But they are more than just a ride; volunteer drivers have a passion for their job. They provide friendly faces, a sounding board or just light conversation – whatever the passenger is comfortable with, as they are transported to their appointments.
Our goal? To provide books for the drivers to give to the children. One book in particular helps children/patients to manage stress. The book is a special request by the Davies Project and it’s called “Angry Octopus: An Anger Management Story Introducing Active Progressive Muscular Relaxation and Deep Breathing” by Lori Lite.
Our staff will be donating many books, but we’re opening the giving up to the public as well so that we can get as many books as possible!
For the next three weeks, we’ll serve as a drop-off point for book donations. Feel free to bring the book to our location at 221 W. Saginaw St. in Lansing, at the corner of Seymour and Saginaw streets. Our office is open for drop-offs weekdays between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. No time to find the book or order one? You may drop off a cash donation that will be used toward “Angry Octopus” and we’ll order for you. Questions? Just ask.
May the spirit of giving be with you this holiday season!
