Since 1999, Mid Michigan College and its employees have supplied Christmas for at least 60 children from Clare and Gladwin counties. Mid employees sponsor selected children by purchasing wished for gifts and needed items.

Picking Up Gifts To Deliver

In past years gifts were exchanged and activities held for the families on Mid’s Harrison Campus. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic the process was adjusted to ensure the health and safety of all those involved. Gifts were purchased, collected on campus, and then delivered by community partners, including Matt Schafer, Owner of Ace Hardware of Clare.

“I was happy to help deliver the gifts so generously given by Mid employees,” shared Schafer. “The College has been a longtime community partner and we value their support.”

“This effort showcases the high regard in which the College holds community connections and the excellent results that can be achieved when teams across the College collaborate,” noted Tim Hood, President of Mid Michigan College.
