From April 29, 2013 through May 6, 2013 Birmingham Maple Clinic therapists and staff have collected canned and non-perishable food items for local food pantry, Gleaners. Gleaners Community Food Bank supports soup kitchens, shelters and pantries in Wayne, Oakland, Macomb, and Livingston Counties. To end hunger, Gleaners attempts to supply the equivalent of 100,000 meals per day to those who cannot afford it in Metro-Detroit and the surrounding communities. Thanks to the support and encouragement of Birmingham Maple Clinic therapists, Joanne Willen and Kate Smith, clinic staff reached and surpassed the goal of collecting 250 food items.
Birmingham Maple Clinic staff supports a number of community and charitable causes. Staff has worked in teams to provide holiday gifts for Lighthouse of Oakland County’s Adopt-a-Family campaign. Birmingham Maple Clinic has also collected gently used clothes, coats, boots, and shoes for LGBT youth social services agency, Ruth Ellis Center, in Detroit. Clinicians have also ran in races to support exceptional causes such as Susan B. Komen Race for the Cure in Detroit, MI and Mind Over Matter 5K in Royal Oak, MI to raise awareness for mental health and suicide prevention.
Birmingham Maple Clinic is proud of its team of experienced psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers, and marriage and family therapists that provide as exceptional care and attention to community causes as they do clinical treatment.
