  • New Day Foundation for Families Fighting Cancer 

    New Day Foundation is a non-profit company supporting individuals and families fighting cancer.  The Founders, Gina and Michael Spehn, each lost their spouse to cancer, and years later, got married and began supporting cancer afflicted families through New Day.  New Day provides support to families who suffer from “cancer related financial toxicity” which is short for…….do I pay for my cancer treatments or do I pay my mortgage, car payment, or put food on my family’s table?!  These are decisions no human being should have to make.  Thanks to New Day Foundation…..they don’t have to!  

    Express Employment was the Diamond Sponsor for the New Day’s Hope Shines Gala held on September 21st at the Atheneum Hotel in Detroit, MI.

    A donation of $50,000 was recently made by Express to Operation Come H.O.M.E (Honoring Our Military for Eternity) – an organization that is supporting the needs of U.S. veterans and their families. The donation is part of The Impact Project, an initiative of the company’s philanthropic committee, designed to give back to nonprofits nominated by franchise owners. Paul LaFrance, Franchise Owner and Regional Michigan Developer, who also serves on the Board of Directors for Operation Come H.O.M.E, is matching the $25,000 donation made by Express. LaFrance nominated OCH to receive the award that was selected out of over 90 applications.

    “We pride ourselves on having a culture built on giving and service at Express,” said Bob Funk, CEO of Express Employment Professionals. “With that in mind, we know how important it is to support the communities where we work, serve and live. The commitment that Paul LaFrance, our owner in Rochester Hills and Troy, has given to Operation Come H.O.ME. is a great example of that support.”

     Operation Come Home is a 501(c) 3 nonprofit organization that provides military veterans and their families with basics to survive, physical, social and psychological help to revive, and housing and employment services to thrive. Operation Come H.O.M.E.’s flagship project goal is to build a 75-unit military style housing facility in SE Michigan.

    “I’m honored to be a part of a company that believes so strongly in giving back to the communities where we live,” said LaFrance. “This money is going to help so many veterans in the southeast Michigan area get the help they need to rebuild their lives with support, counseling and career training. This is my way to show my gratitude and support to the brave and courageous veterans who served our country. They are true heroes. I will always feel deeply indebted to them.”
