Troop Mackinaw event includes Women’s Center donation
The Women’s Resource Center of Northern Michigan (WRCNM) received a large donation of pajamas, mittens and hats to benefit the women and their children who seek safety from domestic abuse at the agency’s Safe Home. The donation was made by more than 400 Girl Scouts, troop leaders and parents who participated in this year’s Troop Mackinaw event. During the weekend gathering, Girl Scouts explored and enjoyed the Mackinaw City area, attended the Lumberjack Festival and earned a community service patch for their donation to the WRCNM Safe Home. The event was organized by Heather Tamlyn and Kelly Simmons of HK Events in Mackinaw City. Pictured during the donation presentation are Troop Mackinaw attendees and three Lumberjack Festival representatives. Chris Krajewski, WRCNM Domestic Abuse and Sexual Assault Program Director was in attendance to address the Girl Scouts and accept the donation.
