We strive to better the quality of life for underprivileged Children in Michigan. 

 

Our Mission

Branches Crew is a registered tax exempt, non-profit humanitarian organization, led by volunteers. Our mission is to instill children with good morals, happiness, and the love they deserve. Branches strives to give children the tools and support they need to succeed and live an enriched life.

How Drop Offs Work

  1. Notify: First we get notified of a child in need by someone in the community. Then we will contact the child's guardian to obtain a list of needs. 
  2. Collect: Next we gather the items from the list. 
  3. Branch Out: Someone from the Branches team will drop of the package within days our initial contact. We try to accommodate the children as soon as possible. 
  4. Follow Up: We follow up with the child's guardian within a few days of delivery.
