May Change for Change: Disability Network of Southwest Michigan

Our May Change for Change program supported Disability Network of Southwest Michigan. Every time you shopped at PFC Natural Grocery & Deli this May you were asked if you'd like to donate to Change for Change. This rounded your bill to the nearest dollar with all of the money going to help educate and connect people with disabilities to community resources while advocating for change.


By rounding your bill to the nearest dollar, you raised $2,698 to help educate and connect people with disabilities to community resources while advocating for change.

Much of the work the Disability Network does ensures that people with disabilities (all types of disabilities and all ages) have access, both physically and programmatically, to the community and the resources that exist in the community (transportation, economic supports, housing) so that they can live as independently as they choose. 

"We are a Center for Independent Living and we believe that people with disabilities are the best judges of what the disability community needs in terms of supports and advocacy; therefore, more than 50% of our Board and Staff are people with disabilities. We have been in existence since 1981 and serve 8 counties in Southwest Michigan, including Kalamazoo." - Kristen Potts, Resource Development Director
