The 2022 Milford Memories Non-Profit Groups include the following:
United Veterans of Michigan
UVM was founded in 2019 to help our national heroes enjoy the great outdoors. Since forming we have taken over 100 Veterans, Active Duty, Gold and Blue Star family members on fishing and hunting excursions at no expense to them. We are a local 501 (c)(3) Non-Profit where 100% of your donation goes to benefit our Veterans suffering from emotional, financial or physical difficulties. With your help we can reach more service men and women, stop by to say HI.
Milford Rotary Foundation
Welcome to Milford Memories and to Milford, Michigan! We are very proud of our town and love to show it off. As members of the Milford Rotary Club, we are a part of an international network of like-minded community leaders and "people of action" that focus on making our world/country/community a better place. We would love to tell you more about that at our table…. But more importantly, we want to help YOU protect your little ones while you are here at our amazing festival. Stop by our table and we will give you a wristband for your child that you can write your cell number on. If they do get lost, anyone with a phone can call you and help you reunite. This is our service to you and again Welcome to Milford!
Stronger Warrior Foundation
The Stronger Warrior Foundation's mission is to keep active, retired, and the families of United States service members strong financially, mentally, and physically. We will honor this through our three distinct programs; the Hardship Program, Scholarship Fund, and Sponsor a Warrior. The Hardship Program's main purpose is to help those service members that have been wounded or have suffered disabilities from combat related services. The Stronger Warrior Scholarship Fund is dedicated to helping active and retired service members, and spouses or children of deceased service members obtain an education through college or a trade school. The Sponsor a Warrior Program is built around the premise of sending care packages to active duty or reserve service members who are deployed.
