Small Project – HUGE Impact!

15 Oct

100 Young Professional Club

Once again the 100 Young Professionals Club was able to make a significant contribution to a local organization. Creative 360 was the chosen nonprofit to donate our pooled monies to at the meeting on October 3.

Karl Ieuter, who is a board member at Creative 360, had his name chosen out of the bowl to be one of the three presenters. He informed the group that Creative  360 has been trying to fundraise for new carpet. According to Karl, they have been struggling with it because it’s not an exciting project and not many people      were willing to give. Creative 360 had already raised $6,000 on their own and only needed a little more to complete their fundraising.

With the 100 YP Club’s $2,300, we completed the fundraising so that Creative 360 can purchase new carpet. Even though this is a small project, we really made a    HUGE impact! Without our support, Creative 360 may not have been able to finish this crucial upgrade.

The other presenters at this meeting talked about projects with the Mid-Michigan Royal Family Kids and the Midland Area Partnership for Drug-Free Youth.    People can nominate the same organization and project at each meeting so these organizations could be chosen again at future meetings.

Not only was the donation a success and very heartwarming, but we increased the number of our Club’s members! In April, we had 32 members, and after the October meeting, we are up to 46 members! Our goal is to get to 100 members though, so if anyone would like to join, or knows of someone who would like to join, please contact Jennelle Maki at the Chamber and let her know! She can get you all the necessary information. You can also learn more about the Club in general at the Chamber’s website.

The next 100 YP Club meeting is TBD so check back for more information and stay tuned! At the next MYPros luncheon, the check for $2,300 will be presented to a representative from Creative 360 and all members of the Club will be recognized.
