Northland Area Provides Meals for Homeless
In honor of Giving Tuesday, Northland Area partnered up with Driftwood Inc. and MJ’s Eatery to provide meals for staff and residents. These organizations provide housing for the homeless and veterans in transition.
CEO Pete Dzuris, Commercial Lender Michael Hall and Branch Manager Timothy Burgeson were on hand to assist that day. Northland Area is a large advocate for veterans and their causes in part because of their roots of originally forming on the Wurtsmith Air Force Base in 1957 in Oscoda. Just this year Northland has donated thousands of dollars towards veteran recognition events and organizations.
“Northland values organizations that, like us, advocate for Veterans and others in need and we are proud to be able to help in our local communities,” said Dzuris.
