Taking Action in Our Community
Shield’s is a Michigan born and bred company that has always believed strongly in supporting the communities that have supported our restaurants. We participate in a variety of community service events in the metro-Detroit area.
Shield’s 2012 highlights include:
– Raising $6,000 for the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) through our 6th annual golf outing in August
– Feeding 300 homeless in association with Feed the Need in June
– Providing meals for 400 volunteers involved with Mitch Album’s 100 Houses Project in August
We at Shield’s have also been ardent supporters of and contributors to:
Encouraging our youth
Shield’s works with high schools to promote and award academic achievement. Our Food for Thought program rewards graduating seniors of participating high schools who achieve a grade point average of 3.5 or better with a Shield’s gift certificate.
High school sports programs are also a Shield’s priority. In an effort to promote teamwork and success, Shield’s hosted a dinner for the members and coaches of the Brother Rice High School varsity football team in recognition of their Class A Championship.
Contact your nearest Shield’s regarding fundraising opportunities. Shield’s will donate a portion of the proceeds from your gathering to your favorite organization! Ask a manager for details.
