Bruce Gale of Michigan Brush Makes a Difference to Local Community
Fri February 25, 2022
Donating to a charitable cause is now easier and faster than ever before, with making a donation online taking almost no time at all. Raising funds for your favoured organization is a wonderful way to help effect positive, practical change in the world and many charities rely on your monetary donations to keep functioning, so the importance of giving what you can should never be underestimated.
However, to operate effectively, in addition to receiving financial gifts most charities also depend upon time donated by volunteers to help them accomplish their goals. For some, volunteering is a great way to expand their skill set and, if you have the time to spare, you can make a lasting impact whilst enhancing your competencies and reaching your own career or personal goals through the benefit of experience.
For others, offering their time and talents and getting involved in sustainable activities on the ground can offer a more meaningful and rewarding experience, as well as providing a real boost to a charity or a cause that they care passionately about. Among this ever-increasing generous group of individuals is one of our very own!
In January 2022, Bruce M Gale, President and CEO of Michigan Brush and Dorden Squeegee Co Inc, as well as Past President of the ABMA (2003-2005), partnered with the Crossroads Shelter in his hometown of Detroit, MI, and offered his personal services to the local community in preparing food for those less fortunate.
Crossroads is a social service outreach agency with two locations in Detroit. Founded in 1971, Crossroads exists to support the community at large by providing emergency assistance, advocacy, and counselling to anyone in need. According to the charity’s website, “Acting in partnership with many other agencies, parishes, hospitals, companies and organizations in the metro area, Crossroads offers assistance in the form of a hand-up.”
It further explains that they “work with our clients to meet their immediate needs and help them assess their situations to lessen the likelihood of future problems. Our efforts are funded by foundations, individuals, and friends who are committed to bringing hope to those living on the edge of despair… Donations of time, talent, and resources are always welcome.”
Knowing Bruce, we are certain that he has brought some brightness, as well as the much-needed sustenance, to all of those he has served.
Volunteers play a vital role in many important projects around the globe, mostly with the flexibility of you being able to choose the amount of time that suits you. So why not follow the lead of Bruce Gale and get involved with a cause close to your own heart?
