UPS/Teamsters Local 406 Project Independence Ramp Build

On Tuesday, April 25th, the United Parcel Service (UPS) and Teamsters Local 406 came together to construct an accessibility ramp for a disabled individual living in the Saginaw county community. Project Independence partners with local businesses and individuals to provide human and financial resources to fund the construction of ramps for low-income disabled residents within the local community. For individuals or businesses, find out how you can donate time and/or financial resources on our Project Independence page.

Ken Horn STEM Visit

Last week, Michigan State Senator Ken Horn visited the Saginaw YMCA's after school STEM program (for more information on the Americorps STEM program, click here). These programs operate at over 10 locations throughout Saginaw County. Students attending this after school STEM session participated in activities that demonstrated the chemical household properties, such as soap. We believe programs such as these are vital to the community.
