MENOMINEE, Mich. (WLUC) - The folks behind the Cookout for a Cause were out on 10th Street in Menominee this morning and they were firing up their grill to benefit the county's Victim Services Unit.
Volunteers from Atrium post acute care of Menominee were behind the effort, aimed at bringing awareness and resources to the V.S.U.
The services unit is a volunteer group of trained individuals dedicated to helping people in a time of crisis.
Members of the unit are dispatched by the Menominee County E-911 center to assist emergency personnel in helping families, victims and survivors deal with the difficulties that come with such situations.
Cassie Emmer is the activities director with Atrium post acute care of Menominee and one of the people who helped chose the V.S.U. to be the beneficiaries of the cookout.
"We picked the Victim Services Unit because not many people know about the services that they offer and we feel it's a great resources for everyone to know about in our county."
