Sunfield Cares Program Update
“Sunfield Cares” is a locally run community program that provides assistance to families in need With COVID now continuing to be dealt with, times are difficult for some people in our community. This presents a whole new coping experience. As frustration and anxiety mounts in area homes, we must find ways to help. To that end, a helping initiative, "Sunfield Cares", was launched here in Sunfield twelve years ago by a group of local business, religious, and community leaders to assist those in the area in need. The purpose of "Sunfield Cares" originally was rather simple and direct---to provide 2 gallons of milk a week to at least 10 families in need for an extended period of time.
If you know of a family that could use that type of assistance from the Sunfield Cares program, just contact David Rosier at 517-566-8141.
John & Sandra Fisher made a contribution to the Scholarship Fund in memory of Kenny Guy.
I have received a report from Rosie Best, who is a rather experienced auditor, informing me that we have published two Newsletters that carried the same number---#83. This error occurred back on June 17th and 19th. So, this Newsletter was advanced to #107 in order to keep the correct count and to prevent anyone with OCD from having to undergo therapy because of it.
