How They Served Their Community


Ishpeming Beautification Big Brothers/Big Sisters YMCA Reach and Rise WJMN staff asked other non-profits to partner with them at Partridge Creek Farm in Ishpeming, a community garden that donates food to the needy through the Salvation Army. Twenty staff members, along with about 30 other volunteers, participated in this one-day event. Volunteers raked the gardens and filled them with dirt, in addition to pulling weeds. These efforts provided a major boost to the effort of the community garden, allowing the planting process to begin a full two weeks early.
