  Blissfield Rotary provides basic needs items to those families who receive holiday food delivery from the local Light of Christ Parish Knights of Columbus. The Knights handle the delivery list and the deliveries themselves. Rotarians purchase the supplies—Bill Borchardt is the project’s heart and soul–and pack them assembly-line style. The packing event this year was Wednesday, December 4, 2019.

LaunchGLOBAL, now in its second year as a Rotary sponsored pilot program, was spearheaded by Rotary volunteers from Rotary District 6400 who initiated LaunchDETROIT in 2012. The pilot was expanded this year to form additional group lending partnerships.

The Rotary Club of Detroit sponsored five entrepreneurs in 2018 and recently formed a second group of four Detroit area entrepreneurs. Through LaunchGLOBAL, eligible participants receive five free small business training classes provided by International Strategic Management (ISM). Following successful completion of the classes, entrepreneurs are formed into groups to help each other grow their businesses while receive mentoring and networking opportunities along with the opportunity to apply for a loan of up to $2,500.

According to Margaret Williamson, chair of LaunchGLOBAL, entrepreneurs in each group have the responsibility to award loans to their respective businesses. “This means taking the time get to know each other, build trust and have confidence that the loan will be repaid on a timely basis,” said Williamson.     This year, the Rotary Club of Detroit’s four qualifying entrepreneurs are Khella Young of Bee Buzzed, Lilllian Quickley of Small BIZness Research and Development, Dazmonique Carr of Deeply Rooted Produce, and Timara Wheeler of Rose Royalty Collections, LLC.
