Letter to the Editor-BBBS Grateful for Memorial Gift


Merriam Webster defines the word generosity as “an act of unselfish giving” and a “willingness to share”.

And for those who knew him, they would agree that it’s also the definition of longtime Clare County resident, the late Mr. Ron Schunk. Mr. Schunk and his loving family, with the help of Jay’s Sporting Goods of Clare, have set up a memorial fund to benefit area children. The “Ron Schunk Take A Kid Fishing Fund” has kindly donated 75 fishing poles to Big Brothers Big Sisters of Mid Michigan in memoriam of Mr. Schunk.

BBBS will use these rods to teach and assist children and young adults to be in the great outdoors and enjoy the same passion as Mr. Schunk has done for many years. Mr. Schunk and his family’s generosity will be remembered and appreciated by the children in Clare County for years to come.

Thank you to the Schunk family and Jay’s for the generosity to fulfill the mission of BBBS and inspire children’s passion and encourage them to achieve success in life.

Forever grateful,

Mid Michigan BBBS
