  • *20 turkeys were distributed to other Pontiac agencies who were assisting with Thanksgiving; and
  • *250 people were fed a Thanksgiving meal on Wednesday with all the fixings thanks to Oak Management.


All I can say is thank you.  On behalf of Baldwin’s Board of Directors, staff and volunteers and most importantly those we serve I humbly say thank you for this holiday effort.  Last week we were short but you all really came through in the most spectacular way!

Baldwin friends make a tremendous difference in the Pontiac community year-round!  Thank you for all that you give– your time, talent and treasure, without you Baldwin would not be a place of help and hope.

I hope you enjoy Thanksgiving with those you love and realize that you are part of a community that makes a difference in the lives of others each and every day.  Thank you.

May your holiday be blessed with love and laughter.

Lisa Machesky
Executive Director
