Fundraising for Downriver


Waynewright Community Meals the “Wyandotte Soup Kitchen”

In the time since the pandemic, we have seen an increase in neighbors from across the downriver area who need our help, but we have been limited in our ability to do some of the in person fundraisers we once relied on. Be Well My Friends provided some well-timed support at a time when we were anticipating a holiday season with growing numbers and even greater community needs. We are so grateful that Be Well My Friends has developed ways of bringing people from across the community together through fun, special events while raising funds to address so many needs across the downriver community. They are proof that we can make sustainable change AND have fun while thinking creatively and compassionately. Thank you, Be Well My Friends!

Penrickton Center for Blind Children

Be Well My Friends has a dedicated team of volunteers that organize community events like the wildly successful Wyandotte Zombie Pub Crawl! All their events benefit Downriver people, organizations, and neighboring non-profit agencies like Penrickton Center for Blind Children. The “inner circle” of volunteers have honored their mutual friend, Kim and embraced her spirit to make a difference. We admire their tireless efforts and thank them for not only providing a generous gift but taking an interest in our multiply disabled children. Thanks for being part of the lives of our children and families.

“Yes, Ma’am”

Be Well My Friends financial support of our organization has helped to provide comfort and care to hundreds of women from the Downriver Area. We are now able to not only provide free breast cancer screenings, but also scalp cooling systems to help reduce hair loss during chemotherapy, stylish wigs, compression sleeves for neuropathy, and self-care gift bags. Please support the many fun crowd-fundraising events that they put on annually to benefit “Yes, Ma’am” and other great organizations and charities of Downriver.” ~ Dr. David Wolf

Downriver Foster Closet

Be Well My Friends has made a huge impact on helping kids in foster care. Not only have they been so supportive in our events they also raised money for us to help give out book bags and school supplies. They are amazing and we couldn’t do what we do without them.” ~ Charity Bronson
