Date:10/26/2007

EAST LANSING, Mich., Oct. 26 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- In a statewide effort to help provide basic comforts to those living in Michigan's domestic violence shelters, the Michigan State Medical Society (MSMS) Foundation mobilized hundreds of volunteers this month to collect and distribute personal care items in conjunction with the Gannett Foundation/Points of Light Foundation's national "Make a Difference Day" on Saturday, October 27.

This is the MSMS Foundation's 11th annual project titled "Doctors and Their Families Make a Difference."

Partners in the MSMS Foundation's effort to help those in shelters across Michigan are MSMS physician members and their families; the MSMS Alliance organization of physician spouses; Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan (BCBSM); East Lansing-based medical liability insurer American Physicians Assurance Corporation; SCW Agency Group, Inc., and MSMS Physicians Insurance Agency.

"Our communities and our state really do need us, and we are pleased to be able to help through this good project," said Linda Allen, president of the MSMS Alliance, an organization of physician spouses.

Participating volunteers go into their communities, hang plastic bags on doorknobs and request that they be filled with basic necessities such as over-the-counter medicines, disposable diapers, new socks and underwear, baby food and formula, and household cleaning supplies.

"Our goal is to collect thousands of bags filled with donated items," said Mary Crawford, MSMS Alliance board member and Make a Difference project chair. "They will be collected by our volunteers acros
