Kindling Community - Community Giving Campaign

Kindling Community campaign graphic

The Fire Station works diligently throughout the year to support causes, events, and organizations that operate within communities across the Upper Peninsula. As a local organization, we understand the strong community values that resonate throughout the U.P., and hope to continue to foster this through our non-profit campaign.

How it works.

The Fire Station’s staff across all of its retail locations identified three non-profits in their local area. Now, our customers have the opportunity to select one of these partners in each of the six counties that TFS operates to receive a $1,000 or $500 donation. 

Our impact.

The Fire Station will donate $9,000 across 12 non-profit organizations in six different Upper Peninsula counties.
TFS will be providing $1,000 to the top six non-profits (one per county). The non-profit with the second most votes per county will receive a $500 donation.

Vote now.

We want to hear your opinion! Tell us where you believe TFS can help the most.

Room at the Inn donation check

Room at the Inn is truly blessed to have received financial support from The Fire Station. We are truly thankful to receive the support and opportunity to collaborate with one of our neighboring businesses. Every dollar donated goes directly to providing essential shelter and support for our fellow unhoused neighbors. This recent contribution has reminded us that a collective commitment to the community is essential for addressing arguably one of the most complex social issues within our community. Together, Room at the Inn and The Fire Station are ensuring that any person experiencing homelessness does not have to experience it alone.

Room at the Inn Executive Director

Marquette County

Room at the Inn was founded in 2007 by a small number of churches organized by Helen McCormick. It was Helen who saw the need for emergency shelter in our community and dedicated herself to ensuring that Room at the Inn establish itself as an private non-profit organization that provides food, shelter, and assistance to those individuals transitioning out of homelessness. For 14 years Room at the Inn operated as a rotating shelter between local churches until 2020, where we established Marquette’s first ever permanent emergency homeless shelter.
In February of 2019 Room at the Inn started an initiative to provide a permanent shelter in Downtown Marquette, that would replace our rotating shelter model through local churches. After raising the funds necessary, gaining community support, and obtaining the necessary permits to complete the project, Room at the Inn successfully opened the doors to our new shelter on December 24th 2020.
We remodeled the three-bedroom apartment above our Warming Center into a 30-bed Emergency Shelter, which now provides 24/7 shelter access. Today we are proud to say we provide all of our services under one roof, and continue to address the issue of homelessness within our community with vigor, enthusiasm, and hope!

We are a local non-profit organization run and staffed by your neighbors.  We make decisions on caring for homeless, unwanted, abandoned and abused domestic animals based on what we believe is best for them.  We have no affiliation with any larger group and we receive no funding from any larger group that might influence our decisions or actions.

We advocate only for the animals in our care to help them find their forever home with you.

UPAWS does not receive operating funds from any governmental agency. We rely on donations from our neighbors and friends to make our efforts possible.  We save consistently 98% of the animals who come to us – which is an award-winning success story.   We want to educate everyone on proper animal care so there soon won’t be the three percent who come to us too sick or wounded to be saved.  It’s your support that makes this dream possible.
