Decorated Table a Great Evening


Whether you were sitting “By the Beach,” watching “The Price is Right;” placing your bets at the “Kentucky Derby,” enjoying some “April Showers” or at one of the other amazing tables Monday night, you know that a great time was had by all. We had good food, warm friendships and fun games that all came together to make the evening a memorable one.

Congratulations to the winning table whose theme was the Kentucky Derby. Thanks to Sheri Berry for her creative talent in decorating the table and Kempf Funeral Homes for sponsoring the table. The creativity at each table was top notch.

I want to express my appreciation to the many individuals, companies and organizations who contributed to the success for our Decorated Table Event on April 15 at Schuler’s Restaurant and Pub. A huge thank you to all the sponsors who shared their resources to bring the event to us; thanks to all the board, staff and volunteers who helped to make the evening a success and thank you to all of you who came to show your support and care for Charitable Union. Truly, you are all amazing and because of you the work of our mission continues. Help that Brings Hope!

Stained Glass Art Depicts CU Mural

Charitable Union received a wonderful gift recently from Chapel Hill United Methodist Church. The above stained glass art piece now hangs in the window in front of the building on 85 Calhoun street. It depicts the charitable works that our agency has been a part of for the past 132 years here in the Battle Creek and surrounding Calhoun County area. On behalf of the board, staff and clients at Charitable Union, thank you Chapel Hill Methodist Church!

    We are delighted to share our thoughts on Charitable Union. This organization has been doing great work in our community since horse and buggy days!

    Charitable Union's mission of providing clothing, bedding and household items at no cost to families in need, truly helps folks on their journey out of poverty. Independent and self-sufficient families grow healthy and happy children. Last year alone, Charitable Union served more than 5,000 children, from infants to teens. The organization provided the clothing, baby care items, and other essentials these children needed to live in basic dignity.

    We support the good work of Charitable Union. We hope you will look into all of the great things they do.
