Local Auto Dealership Wishes to Thank the WCSO for Great Service, Presents Check for $2,000 to the WISD Education Project, Charity Chosen by Sheriff Jerry L. Clayton
Mike Mosser, General Manager of Suburban Chevrolet, Cadillac, Saab, presented a check for $2,000 on behalf of the dealership to Jennifer Martin, representing the Education Project for Homeless Youth, this morning on the Lucy Ann Lance show. The generous donation was designed to “show appreciation for the great work of the Washtenaw County Sheriff’s Office” by benefitting a worthy cause, chosen by Sheriff Jerry L. Clayton.
Sheriff Clayton was contacted by Mike Mosser General Manager of Suburban Chevrolet Cadillac, Saab. The dealership was “very appreciative of the great work the Sheriff’s Office has done this past year” and wanted to thank the WCSO in a tangible manner. Since the WCSO does not take gratuities, the dealership decided to donate to a charity chosen by the Sheriff’s Office.
The Education Project for Homeless Youth, a program run through the Washtenaw Intermediate School District, was chosen by Sheriff Clayton. The Education Project serves and supports young people who are homeless and tries to maintain educational stability for them. Among the many services they offer, every year they try to provide “socks, underwear, hats, gloves, winter coats” as supplies allow. http://wash.k12.mi.us/instruction/ephy.php
This choice was consistent with one of the main focuses of the WCSO, which is supporting youth initiatives and improving outcomes for youth in our county. The WCSO and Sheriff Clayton wish to thank the Education Project for the great work they do to assist young people in Washtenaw County and Suburban Chevrolet, Cadillac, Saab for their generous donation to support the Education Project’s efforts.
