The National Grange adopted deafness as its health project in 1970. Throughout the years this program has evolved to include all levels of hearing loss. Local Granges in many states have supported the program by educating themselves and others about hearing loss. We have a variety of posters available to donate to schools, libraries, and other interested community groups. This is one way we as the Grange can educate the public. What a great community service project! Contact Luanna Swainston to obtain posters to distribute.

​In Michigan we have an ongoing project or program with Michigan School for the Deaf. We sponsor children at Christmas time and give them a party and gifts. This is an excellent day! If you have never come to one of these days...give it a try this next December. We also give a $500 scholarship to a graduate each year at their graduation.

Here in Michigan we still collect the Boxtops for Education and donate them to the Michigan School for the Deaf. Each year MSD gives us a wish list that we work to fulfill as much as we can. Be on the lookout for this in the Fall. Another great Community Service Project.

Your Grange should have received their appeal letter from Sister Luanna Swainston, Michigan State Grange Deaf Awareness Director in the last few days. Please consider a donation of any size to help with the projects throughout the year.
