This year Auto Body Xperts teamed up with Shields for Hope for Christmas. Shields of hope is a local non profit West Michigan organization. Comprised of local public servants, who volunteer their time, to spread hope, love, and encouragement to those in their community affected by cancer and hardships.Through fundraising and other supportive measures.

Families were  secretly nominated by others in the community. We then had wish lists for each person in the family. The wishes ranged anywhere from toiletries like toilet paper and soap. To a child’s dream of a new bike or snow board or simply a warm winter coat. It was you and the people in the community who took the time to go shopping and generously purchase something for these families, they sometimes did not even know. Auto body Xperts and Shields of Hope had several volunteers who helped wrap and deliver these gifts to the families.

To say we he had success with the collaboration would be an understatement. We were able to help give so much love and wonderful memories to  these families, who are struggling with unfortunate circumstances. To see the joy that a community who comes together can bring is monumental and powerful. A true sense of “unity” could be felt and these families could feel that they are not alone they have support from those who merely live close to them. From All of us at Auto Body Xperts Thank you!!

If your looking for a way to help in your community Shields for Hope is always taking donations and volunteers.
