Make a Difference with Year End Giving

Picture
You can still make a difference in 2016 with charitable gifts.

As 2016 draws to a close and we look back over the year we can see our successes as a company, but we realize once again that nothing we do means more to us than giving back to our local community. So we wanted to present you with an opportunity to join us in making a difference before this year comes to an end.

R&B Used Books is a local bookstore that has meant a lot to the Spud Software family. They support Lucky Day Animal Rescue with in-store adoption events. They provide sponsorship for local businesses and charities. And one of our employees even got engaged there. In order to keep the business open and growing for our community, they've set a goal of selling 20,000 books in the month of December. As of this morning they've sold just shy of 10,000 books. R&B Used Books continues to give to their community and support other local businesses and charities and we want to encourage you to stop in and help them reach their goal. You can find out more on their Facebook page or stop in at 12830 S Saginaw St in Grand Blanc.

While we like to encourage giving back to your local community, there are many great charitable organizations out there to donate to at the end of the year. You can give hope to those in need by supporting the American Red Cross or you can help the sick children at St. Jude's.  You can support our veterans through Wounded Warriors or relieve hunger by Feeding America.

However you choose to give back, we encourage everyone to end your year by thinking of others and finding ways to make a difference.
