This Tuesday, True North Community Services got together with 1100 at-risk kids in Newaygo County. They call it "Tools for School." And, boy, was it ever!
These kids got a ton of stuff: Backpacks filled with supplies, shoes, haircuts, and even health screenings -- anything you can think a child may need to start the school year off on the right foot, they got.
Alison Clark, who represents True North Community Services, calls it a 'community collaboration, coordinated by True North, to help families in need.'
►Aww, how sweet: One Good Thing: Love, support and baseball
If you did not know, True North does a lot; they help people with heating their homes, keeping their homes, food, help others attain an education.
So, for helping well more than a thousand kids prepare for the rigors of next school year, True North Community Services gets today's One Good Thing.
If you have a One Good Thing you'd like to submit -- someone or some thing that makes West Michigan a good place to live -- email it to us with pictures or video to firstname.lastname@example.org.
