Giving Back

At The Packer Group, we believe in giving back to our community, and here’s why. This area is our home, and we feel a responsibility to take care of it and those in it that need help. It’s not just a way to drum up positive PR, it’s a calling and a privilege. We may not be able to help everyone, or right every wrong, but we can do our part.

Christmas Presents for a Family in Need

In December 2015, our agents and staff were moved by a story of a family in need in Detroit. This family, with 5 children, was going through significant financial hardship, and would be unable to provide any Christmas presents. Partnering with Most Holy Trinity School in Detroit, we got a list of hobbies and interests for each of the 5 kids, and provided gifts that were personalized for each kid. While we will respect the privacy of the family, we sincerely hope they had a Merry Christmas!

Private: New Hope Family Fun Festival

The Packer Group was proud to help sponsor and participate in the annual 2015 New Hope Family Fun Festival, benefiting the New Hope Center for Grief Support. The festival took place at Mill Race Historical Village in Northville. There were games and prizes for kids, yummy food, a visit from the Northville Fire Department, and a dunk tank! Our own Bridget Holton made a Plinko board for the kids (and some adults’ John Mcleod, we’re lookin’ at you!), and our fearless leader Jeff took the hot seat (wet seat?) in the dunk tank! It was an awesome afternoon!

New Hope Center for Grief Support is a non-profit 501(c)(3) that serves as a unique provider of grief support, education, and community to grieving people after the loss of a loved one. They offer resources for both adults and youth, including workshops, support groups, and a specially designed 8-week course.
