The Red Wing For’em Club has two local charities that we work with, Gilda’s Club and Turning Point. Read below for more information on these organizations.LaceHeaders-800px-GildasSubhead

Gilda’s Club Metro Detroit ensures that all people impacted by cancer are empowered by knowledge, strengthened by action and sustained by community. Our organization creates welcoming communities of free support for everyone living with cancer – men, women, teens and children – along with their families and friends.

Since 1998, more than 10,000 individuals and families have visited their Clubhouse in Royal Oak or one of their off-site locations with hospital partners around Metro Detroit. Today, they have more than 10,000 members. Their program provides support and networking groups, educational lectures, workshops and social activities for cancer patients, their loved ones, and those who are bereft.LaceHeaders-800px-TurningSubhead

Turning Point’s mission is to provide programs and resources that enable victims/survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault to regain control of their lives.

Turning Point began in 1980 through the grassroots efforts of community volunteers who wanted to provide a safe place for victims of domestic violence. Turning Point opened with a 15-bed shelter and 24-hour crisis line. In 1986 sexual assault intervention and prevention were added to our mission. Located in the Metro Detroit, Tri-County area, Turning Point has a long history of providing advocacy for domestic and sexual assault survivors, both locally and throughout the State of Michigan.
