Roof Sit scheduled for Feb. 2

HURON COUNTY - On Feb. 2, the sun might come out and send the groundhog scurrying back into his den, but it won’t scare off the Roof Sit teams!

The Huron County Child Abuse & Neglect Council (CA/N) will once again conduct its annual Roof Sit fundraiser. This year’s Roof Sit will take place on Friday, Feb. 2 from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at McDonald’s Food & Family Center in Bad Axe - and 2018 will mark the 22nd time that the Roof Sit has taken place.

Each year, approximately 25 teams consisting of local community members register to take their turn on the roof of the McDonald’s Food & Family Center’s building to demonstrate their commitment to child abuse and neglect prevention in Huron County. Each team collects donations during their time on the roof as well as helps to raise awareness of the efforts of the CA/N Council of Huron County. Every dollar raised goes directly to combating child abuse and neglect in Huron County.

According to the Children’s Trust Fund, the number of confirmed investigated child abuse cases in Michigan in 2015 was more than 92,000 cases, with nearly 35,000 victims of child abuse/ neglect.

Child abuse and neglect is preventable and that is the mission of the CA/N Council of Huron County.

The Roof Sit is the CA/N Council’s largest fundraiser each year and this year’s goal is to raise $12,000.

There is still time to register a team for this important fundraiser. Registration forms are available atwww.huroncountycancouncil.org. The deadline to register a team is Tuesday, Jan. 23.

Anyone unable to attend or participate in the Roof Sit but are still interested in making a donation can send a donation to: Huron County Child Abuse and Neglect Council, P.O. Box 332, Bad Axe, MI 48413.
