Charity

Our charity for 2017 is the Lowell Farm & Wildlife Center.

“The Lowell Farm & Wildlife Center is a private, federally-recognized 501(c)3 tax exempt non-profit organization that is certified and licensed by the DNR to rescue, rehabilitate, and provide sanctuary for abandoned, orphaned, and injured animals in west Michigan. Located in Lowell, MI near Grand Rapids, annually, we care for over 2,000 wild animals. We also rehabilitate domestic, farm and exotic animals. We promote respect for wildlife and the environment and seek to educate the public on the proper care of animal companions and their wild counterparts.”

The center will have an information table (and possibly some animal friends) at GLFC. You can find out more about them at http://www.farmwildlife.org/ or follow them on Facebook and Twitter. You can also help out by buying things for them off of the list below:
