“Let No Child Be Forgotten”
To live up to this motto, we have established basic concepts that include:
The Mission: “A community based organization dedicated to creating awareness of and support for grieving children, teens, and their families.”
Ele’s Place is a healing center for grieving children and teens. Four branch locations support families throughout the Ann Arbor, Grand Rapids, Flint and Lansing areas and beyond. Each week, peer support group programs help hundreds of children and teens learn how to cope and begin to heal after the death of a parent, sibling or other loved one.
We truly believe that Christmas is for children and that enjoying Christmas like his or her playmates may help a child to grow up to be a good citizen.
Snowman Sales have benefited many worthwhile local charities in previous years thanks to our very generous members! In 2017, members contributed over $22,000 to Whaley Children’s Center and McLaren Hospitality House with each charity receiving a check for $11,117.25.
