Impact Cares
in Michigan and Illinois
We were blessed with many volunteers at Franklin Woods! Twenty Impact employees and their families came along with several vendors from other areas. Rick and Steve from Clayton Homes even joined us for part of the day! In total we had 56 volunteers, including 29 residents! Dan H. and Todd B. dug right in and worked on some of the hardest jobs of the day! We have great employees who are willing to give of their time and their hearts to help others!
