Livingston County Democrats Donate Nearly
2,200 Meals for Needy

Livingston County Democrats recently opened their pocketbooks and pantries to help their neighbors in need enjoy a more festive holiday.

Democrats who attended the organization’s annual holiday party on Dec. 7 donated cash, checks, and food to Gleaners Community Food Bank that will provide some 2,162 meals for those in need. Party members delivered the food and donations to the Gleaners distribution center in Brighton on Tuesday.

“Donating to Gleaners has been a holiday tradition for local Democrats for many years. The holidays are a hard time for people with limited incomes, and those of us who are lucky enough to have a little extra are glad to share with those in need,” said Judy Daubenmier, chair of the Livingston County Democratic Party.

The collection for Gleaners is part of the Democrats’ tradition of community involvement that includes participating in the Michigan Department of Transportation’s Adopt-a-Highway roadside clean-up program for more than 25 years, collecting items for patients at the Veterans Administration Hospital in Ann Arbor, and the sponsorship of a Wild Game Dinner with Optional Golf Scramble benefiting veterans’ organizations in the county.
