Under the new agreement between the SWARC and GreenTech, the event will once again be open to everyone, irrespective of the community in which they live from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. June 25th at the Shelby Township Hall at 52700 Van Dyke Ave. 

The new terms of the collection, which occurs the final Saturday of every month, have each car dropping off items paying a $5 fee with $1 of that fee going to the local charity staffing the collection. The fee also includes up to one Cathode Ray Tube (CRT) monitors and televisions. Additional CRTs can be recycled for $10 per CRT.

“Everyone involved in the program or anyone who has used the program knows that it is very important to our residents and community,” said Township Trustee Paula Filar, who serves on the SWARC. “And I’m very happy to announce the event is back open to all communities and will allow us to collect even more electronics that would otherwise pollute our environment.”

Trinity Community Care hosts 3rd Annual ‘I Care 4 Healthcare’ 5k Walk and Fundraiser

May 13, 2016

Trinity Community Care is hosting its ‘I Care 4 Healthcare’ 5K Run/Walk Fundraiser to benefit its free medical and dental clinic for the uninsured and under-insured in metro Detroit at 9 a.m. on Saturday, May 21 at Crossfit Edge 94 at 4775 25 Mile Road.

The annual 5K is the primary fundraiser for Trinity Community Care in its mission of serving Shelby Township and its neighboring communities.

“It is an honor to have Trinity Community Care within our borders, and the work the Trinity Community Care staff does for others is a great example for all of us,” said Township Supervisor Rick Stathakis, who sits on the Trinity Community Care Board of Directors.

The walk/run is the third annual fundraiser for Trinity Community Care, and will feature medals for the top three male and female runners, a raffle, BBQ, and goodie bags for all participants post-race. The course will follow the Macomb Orchard trail.

Trinity Community Care’s vision is “strong and healthy individuals, families and communities through access to care.” Their services are delivered with unconditional Christian love. They strive to do this in a manner that creates positive health outcomes for their patients in the township and throughout the entire Metro Detroit Area.

Supervisor Stathakis is encouraging people of all ages to come out and join him in supporting this worthy cause.

“Health insurance is a serious barrier for many struggling people in dire need of medical care.” Stathakis said. “Any opportunity to contribute to providing health services such as those that Trinity Community Care administers can improve the lives of many.”

The event will also be providing hot dogs, ice cream, a bounce house, and much more for its participants to enjoy.
