More than 50 backpacks and countless school supplies contributed
FARMINGTON HILLS, Mich., August 26, 2014–Corrigan Moving Systems, a Farmington Hills, Mich.-based relocation company dedicated to elevating the moving experience, hosted an internal backpack drive to benefit Big Family of Michigan that culminated with a public donation day on Tuesday, August 19. In total, the drive garnered more than 50 backpacks and several boxes of school supplies that will be given to Michigan’s foster children this school year. Corrigan Moving Systems President David Corrigan made the announcement.
For two weeks leading up to the public donation day, Corrigan employees at all southeastern Michigan locations were invited to donate school supplies, including backpacks, mechanical pencils, filler paper, spiral notebooks, 3-ring vinyl notebooks, rulers, protractors, compasses, small, solar-powered calculators and safety scissors, among other general school supplies. To conclude the drive, Corrigan trucks were positioned at two Ramco-Gershenson Properties Trust shopping centers in metro Detroit for an all-day donation event.
“Big Family of Michigan is an outstanding organization, and we were thrilled to support their back-to-school initiative this year,” said Corrigan. “Corrigan is a family-owned business, and we understand the importance of a solid education for kids. By arming them with the tools they need to thrive in school, Big Family helps send these kids back to class with confidence.”
Big Family of Michigan is a nonprofit that serves the needs of Michigan’s foster children and young adults. They work with adoption organizations, foster parents, social workers and the children to make sure the children are receiving the love, care, and items they need and require to become successful adults.
