This year’s ceremony will recognize our Woman of the Year, Lisa Vilella, founder of Mimi’s Mission and owner/agent of the Lisa Vilella Agency, Farm Bureau Insurance.
Mimi’s Mission is a nonprofit organization that started as a gently used clothing center free to all in need. The Mission has grown to further help low income families in need of beds for their children. Lisa receives referrals from many Downriver and metro charities. She assisted over 1,700 people during the 2015 holiday season and continues to assist those who need help year round.
CONGRATULATIONS Lisa! We thank you for all that you do.
