After a brief hiatus due to Covid, the Westland Community Foundation was back and committed to providing resources to the Westland community.
Their first event was their annual "Christmas in July" celebration. Attendees were asked to bring some unopened bags of food to be given to the The Wayne-Westland Salvation Army to help spread a little Christmas cheer to those who might need it!
The first event with their new partnership with the Local Impact Alliance was a great success and will help them continue to grow and provide assistance to Westland organizations and students.
Since 1996, the Westland Community Foundation has contributed over $1 million to organizations and student scholarships within our community.

Wayne County Community College, Priority Waste, Westland Car Care, Shaw Family Foundation, Fausone Bohn, LLP, The Buccilli Group, Dearborn Real Estate, Michigan Chiropractic Specialist, Plante Moran, Mayor William R. Wild, Midwest Recycling, OHM Advisors, Westland Fire Administration, Westland Fire Public Awareness, Westland Police Department Community Partnership.
