Professional with expertise in this field
I currently work at Charitable Union and am proud of the work we do in the Battle Creek area. For more than 123 years we have served the needs of the residents of Battle Creek. Our mission is to provide clothing and small household items, at no cost, to those in need and to advocate with them toward their self-suffieciency.
Last year we distributed 457,792 articles of clothing, coats, household items and much more to over 11,587 clients. And we did not charge them one cent for what they received.
It is a wonderful, caring organization and after more than 35 years in the nonprofit sector I am honored to be a part of this organization.
