Machine helping those less fortunate

The Motor City Machine has taken a local family from the First Step Western Wayne Co. Project on Domestic and Sexual Violence under the wing for the giving season to make their holidays more enjoyable.

Over the past few weeks, the Machine’s office staff has been hard at work collecting donations and various items to brighten the skies for those less fortunate.

While the Marquette Rangers were in town this past weekend, the Machine collected over $300 in donations, clothing items and gift certificates to help a local family in need.

“We’ve worked all weekend and to see this kind of support is amazing,” stated the Machine’s Jacob Collins.

"With many families in times of despair around these times of year, I’m glad to be a part of it,” added defensemen Alec Thieda.
