Whether your child loves science, sports or something else – there are a variety of in-person and virtual day camps for children of all ages available this summer to keep them engaged. To help navigate the shifts in camp offerings, we have carefully curated a list of current options, which can be found in today's blog post.
Independence Day is upon us. And that means it’s time for food, fireworks, friends and family. But fun and games aside, the Fourth of July is known as America’s most dangerous holiday. From drunk drivers to burn injuries, there is definitely cause for concern. So today’s MMYH summer safety feature will focus on several precautions you can take to ensure an accident-free weekend.
A family of three. Just a single mother working as a certified nursing assistant and her two young daughters trying to keep their heads above water. Then COVID-19 hits and an economic crisis ensues. The family loses their grandmother to the virus and their household also sees an infection. The mother is laid off of work. Money is lost and hard choices have to be made. This story is all too familiar -- but it’s real and it happened to a Macomb County family. Fortunately, in this instance, Macomb Community Action was there to help. Learn how the agency, with its forward-thinking strategies and innovative practices, is helping people get back on their feet in a way that is both sustainable and empowering in today’s MMYH blog feature.
The Macomb Food Program is seeking donations as part of a virtual Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive, an annual event hosted by the National Association of Letter Carriers (NALC). In previous years, the food drive was held in May and saw postal workers pick up bags of non-perishable, non-expired food items left on porches or near mailboxes. This year, the NALC postponed the in-person event due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
There’s nothing more important than protecting your loved ones from danger. And when it comes to children, there are plenty of guidelines to follow to keep them safe. Especially in and around cars.
Today’s Make Macomb Your Home blog safety feature focuses on boating - because according to the Macomb County Sheriff Marine Division, we’ve now entered the high season for accidents.
The weather is warm and the pools are open! It’s officially summer in Macomb County. A time to soak up the sun and enjoy the outdoors. But while there is plenty of fun to be had, there are also precautions that must be taken to ensure the health and well-being of loved ones. This is why the Make Macomb Your Home blog is launching a new series on summer safety. Today’s focus will be on protecting children while swimming or near the water - but stay tuned for additional features on boating, fireworks, grilling and other summer activities. Our goal is to keep you informed so you can protect your loved ones this season.
Macomb County has joined forces with the Macomb County Chamber, the Sterling Heights Regional Chamber, the Anchor Bay Chamber, the Eastpointe-Roseville Chamber, the Greater Romeo Washington Chamber and the Richmond Chamber of Commerce to launch the Macomb is Open contest. The initiative is made possible through the support of the Michigan Schools and Government Credit Union, which is matching county and chamber funds to make up to $21,000 available for local eateries and patrons.
We all have a favorite restaurant; you know the one – where you feel like family when you walk in. Where your cup of coffee is sitting at your seat before you are, and you never have to look at the menu because you already know what you are going to order. These restaurants are in every corner of Macomb County. And it's the reason behind the Macomb is Open contest.
For many, Memorial Day marks the official start to summer. It also makes for a much-needed three-day weekend after the long slog of winter -- and a pandemic. And while we all love the time off, it is important that we remember the real reason for this holiday.
