Michael Pement is a simply amazing young man.  Michael contacted Tote Bags of Love in June, 2014 to discuss the possibility of him helping Tote Bags of Love fill Back Packs as part of his Eagle Scout Project.  He would supply school supplies for 100 Back Packs made by Tote Bags of Love and fill 100 of these Back Packs with the school supplies.  That in itself was wonderful of him to do.  His goal was to make sure that these Back Packs were filled and delivered prior to the underprivileged school children starting school.

Michael needed to contact and have 5 individuals give their approval of and sign-off on his Eagle Scout Project prior to him being able to start the project.  With the timeline being so tight Michael made the decision to use his own money to buy the above school supplies.  He would then hold 2 fundraisers in September and October.  The money that he earned with these fundraisers would replace what he spent of his money.  He had not planned for Tote Bags of Love to know that he was intending to do this.  When we did find out we were amazed by his generosity and kindness.  It is because of the above that Michael is an amazing young man.  Thank you, Michael for everything you have done!!!!

I would like to acknowledge a very special lady – Kathy Harriman.  Kathy came to the Sterling Heights Lions Club Production Event in June.  We were making Back Packs for underprivileged school children.  Kathy made several at this event.  At the end of the event she offered to take some home and work on them.  When asked how many she would like – she replied 100.  When she was finished with those 100 she took another 100.  Kathy on her own made 253 Back Packs!!!!  Due to Kathy we were able to help 331 underprivileged school children.    Thank you, so much, you awesome lady!!!
