Encore Financial Group recently established Encore for Gifting; a charitable campaign in which Encore will be gifting $1000 per quarter to a worthy 501c3 Non-Profit! A committee of staff members, representatives, and clients reviewed the nominees and chose the first Encore for Gifting recipient.

During the Cheboygan Business Expo, Debra Turnbull accepted a $1000 check on behalf of the Cheboygan Youth Center from EFG Representatives- Darwin Hesselink & Linda Moline. Encore Financial Group is honored to provide support to the programs and initiatives provided by the Youth Center.

The Cheboygan Youth Center offers after school and summer programs 3 afternoons a week for youth in grades 5-9 provided at no cost to families. The center offers diverse services and activities; including counseling and life skills exercises, physical activities, gardening, construction and art projects.

Aside from nearly 100 children participating in fun and positive activities many participants develop a sense of connection to the community at large and a sense of self-worth and self-efficacy. The Youth Center’s philosophy is that belonging leads to learning which leads to contributing. In line with their mission of improving personal responsibility, self-growth, and positive social skills in youth the center reports a dramatic drop in school truancy and police referrals in this population.

Thank you CYC for your dedication to our community and our children!
