  • Yes, Virginia there is a Springtime!

    "Virginia your little friends are wrong. They have been affected by the skepticism of a skeptical age. They do not believe except what they see....Yes, Virginia, there is a..." Springtime. It exists as certainly as love and generosity and devotion exist.....alas! how dreary would the world be is there was no Springtime. It would be as dreary as if there were no Charitable Union. There would be no clothes to give away, no smiles on kids faces.....

    Not believe in Springtime! You might was well not believe in donating! "You may tear apart the baby rattle and see what makes the noise inside....Is it real? Ah, Virginia, in all the world there is nothing else real and abiding...."

    No Springtime! Thank God! it lives and will live forever. A thousand years from now (when this snow melts) we will see Springtime and it will continue to make glad the hearts of all....

    Thanks for all your donations and Yes, Springtime is coming!

  • Who do we serve

    We are getting a lot of requests for people around the country for help. While we would like to help everyone, our resources are limited and we are geared to serve our local area. That means our mission is to serve those in need in the greater Battle Creek, Michigan area.

    There are lots of organizations available to help those in need, please check out agencies in your local area; Goodwill, Salvation Army and if you have 211 help service call them and let them know what you need, they will be able to provide you with agencies in your local area that can help.
