Highland, MI (PRUnderground) March 27th, 2019
Driving Successful Lives, a Michigan-based national non-profit, recently partnered with Lakeridge Village, Little Cesar’s Pizza franchisee Brent Armstrong of Detroit, and Aunt Millie’s Bakery to host a charity event with a primary focus on housing in the city of Detroit.
“Driving Successful Lives regularly donates hundreds of food items, clothing, furniture and housewares to needy families” reported a spokesperson for the non-profit. “Teaming with Lakeridge provides us with a conduit for making the most of our efforts with their direct relationships with those who are actually in need.” The organization presented Pastor Eddie Williams of LakeRidge Village, Inc. (a non-profit agency that provides housing and other human services) with a $1000 check during the event. “This is one of many presentations that we will be making to help ease the pains of those with financial shortcomings.”
Driving Successful Lives has also assisted Lakeridge Village residents by providing them with vehicles and transportation from their nationwide car donation program.
“The goal of our organization is to help those in need and constantly give back,” says their Executive Director. “There is no better gift in this life than to give and support the needs of other human beings who are less fortunate.”
Pastor Eddie and Laverne Williams who run Lakeridge Village welcomed the kind donations and support from a fellow non-profit charity and committed to continue the mission of helping people integrate back into society and become productive members of the community. With the help and support of Driving Successful Lives, they were able to expand their services for providing addiction treatment, housing, vocational training and ministry to people in their program.

About Driving Successful Lives
Driving Successful Lives’ mission is to facilitate car donations so that veterans, homeless families, children, those with addictions & other non-profits can benefit from fellow citizens giving-forward.
Every time a person gives to the charity of their choice it may also create a tax benefit for them. The money, the items, and the real property that they have donated to non-profit institutions throughout the tax year may be tax deductible which means that they could end up being the difference between a good tax return and a great tax return. Depending upon the kind of donation and the type of charity or foundation that they chose to donate to, the tax deduction it creates could be very helpful for reducing the amount taxes that they owe. Many successful and wealthy people state that at least to a certain degree, a part of whom they are and what they have become comes at least in part from the practice of giving. Contributing to charities can be a very convenient way to reduce taxes.
