Wolverine Chapter #1332 presented checks to various charity organizations at the February chapter meeting. Representatives from Wigs for Kids, Kids on the Go and Angels of Hope each received a check for $1,000 and took a few minutes to describe how that money will be used for each of their programs. Our contributions will help children in the metro Detroit area who are faced with challenges such as autism, hair loss caused by childrens' diseases and financial disparity.
In total the chapter contributed $13,000 to children's charity organizations for 2016. More then half of this money was generated through riding activities and events without any financial impact to the chapter or our members. Examples of this are bike washes, picnic outings and local restaurants contributing a percentage of sales from a dinner ride. The remainder was raised during our annual collection drive in November. It is important to note that none of the donated monies come from general Chapter finances or member dues. None of this happens without the help of volunteers to coordinate these activities and work with local businesses. THANK YOU!

Wolverine Chapter #1332 presented Variety - the Children's Charity with a check for $10,000 at the January chapter meeting. This was the culmination of 12 months of work holding various fund raising activities by our chapter members. Michelle Murphy from Variety attended the meeting to receive the check from our Charity committee person Josie DiFalco. Michelle expressed the following thanks:
"Thank you to the dedicated and enthusiastic Wolverine Chapter 1332 membership and Wolverine Harley-Davidson for supporting Variety as its children's charity of the year! Members volunteered their time and organized events such as the November weekend collection drive (despite the cold and wet weather!), summer picnic, gift wrapping services and more to support Variety's core programs serving children with special needs. THANK YOU for your generous support! We are so grateful."
A huge thanks to everyone who contributed time, money and other resources toward our fund raising in 2016. Without your hard work and dedication we could not have made this happen. Know that you have made a difference to a child in need.
