“Individual achievement depends on a community of people working together.”
D.A. Blodgett – St. John’s
D.A. Blodgett – St. John’s is an agency that has been partnering with our community for the good of children since 1887. D.A. Blodgett – St. John’s provides a wide array of services to children and families, including Big Brothers Big Sisters, foster care, adoption, and family support. Both residential treatment and emergency shelter care are available at St. John’s Campus. As a non-profit, D.A. Blodgett – St. John’s is dependent on donations to meet the needs of children and families. At the end of our annual Christmas Party we presented a donation to D.A. Blodgett – St. John’s raised through the Kids First Buyback Program (pictured right). Through the Kids First Buyback Program we purchased back our customers old phone systems when selling them a new one. The proceeds from reselling the old phone systems continue to make donations like this possible.

The Ronald McDonald House
The Ronald McDonald House of Western Michigan aims to provide a home away from home for families of youth receiving medical or mental health treatment. Every year the RMHWM provides housing, transportation and other amenities for over 450 families for extended periods of time. Our relationship with the RMHWM is ongoing. Over the years we have donated food and office furniture, made meals for guests, and volunteered our time to service their phone systems. Most recently we participated in the “Get Your Socks On” campaign (pictured left) to raise awareness for the RMHWM.
