Wright Beamer is privileged to once again lend its support as a corporate sponsor for Neighborhood House’s Annual Fundraising Gala on April 21, 2016, from 4:00 to 7:00 p.m. The event will be held at the historic Longacre House at 24705 Farmington Road in Farmington Hills. Tickets are $25 and can be purchased in advance by calling (248) 871-2848, or at the door.
Neighborhood House is a local charity supported totally by our local community. It is affiliated with the Farmington Area Goodfellows and is in its 27th year of making a difference in our community, helping local families and individuals who are in need. Because of the work that Neighborhood House does and the help that it provides, Neighborhood House was presented before the Farmington Hills City Council with the 2015 Outstanding Organization award by the Farmington/Farmington Hills Commission on Children, Youth and Families.
Neighborhood House was started by Dick Tupper, a prior mayor and city councilman of Farmington, long-time head of the Farmington Area Goodfellows, and a major and tirelessly dedicated community leader and supporter. It provides assistance in addition to the good work and help that the Goodfellows provides to families, individuals, and seniors at year end during the holiday season. Over the last two years, Neighborhood House has provided financial assistance to nearly 475 local families and individuals in need to help them with their rent, heating bills, electric bills and water bills. It has also provided food from its food pantry to nearly 350 local families and individuals over the last two years, as well as referrals to other agencies and resources in the area and region that provide help.
Neighborhood House is more important and significant to our local community today than ever, acting more and more as a safety net as other governmental and social resources that provide help have become less and less available. While there are a number of worthy charities in the area and nationally, contributions to Neighborhood House are so very important and beneficial because they remain local, to help families and individuals right here in our own communities of Farmington and Farmington Hills. This not only helps those who are in need in our local communities, but also helps make our overall communities better and stronger places in which to live, work, and do business.
If you are able to join us on April 21, please do so.
