Thank You… to Area Businesses and Special Friends for their On-going Support

On April 18, The Emily Ann Griffin Foundation (along with three other worthy organizations) was given the opportunity to present to the Plymouth Canton Women’s Giving Circle. The Giving Circle provides assistance to organizations that address the needs of women and families in the greater Canton and Plymouth areas. Each organization at the April 18 meeting was given the opportunity to talk about their groups and how they positively impact the lives of women and families in our area. After the presentations, members of the Giving Circle donate $100 and vote on which organization should receive the donated funds. The Emily Ann Griffin Foundation was thrilled to receive the collected funds totalling more than $6300. Thank you to the Plymouth Canton Women’s Giving Circle and to all who donated. (At press time, we were unable to list the individuals who donated. These names will be included in our next newsletter.)

Thank you Dan and Janet Doyle for sponsoring The Emily Ann Griffin Foundation!
