Kent County Compassion Club

Recommended Posts

Patients and caregivers in Kent County and areas nearby should make a trip to the first meeting of Kent County Compassion Club Wednesday evening for an evening of education and fellowship with like-minded people. It will be worth the trip to meet the people in your area!

I've tried contacting them by Facebook with no reply.  She did accept a friend request, but no response, I might stop by tomorrow and see, but I am a little wary since it is a bit of a drive and no response after weeks makes me question if it is worth it...

MMMA Compassion Clubs are simply community-based support groups of patients, caregivers, families and loved ones, local caregiver groups, and the public, who meet regularly to learn and provide mutual support. Compassion Clubs discuss issues effecting Michigan’s medical marijuana community, and promote the open exchange of ideas and information.

MMMA Compassion Clubs form when friends and neighbors come together to support, learn from, and educate each other. Some programming is provided on a regular basis to local groups by the central MMMA office. In addition, Compassion Clubs are encouraged to develop their own local programming based on local needs and resources.

The most important benefit of each meeting however comes from the empowerment members feel from the social networking and community building that is a positive side effect of these meetings. We are inclusive, color-blind, compassionate, tolerant, law-abiding people coming together to support local members of Michigan’s medical marijuana community.

Compassion Clubs are also encouraged to interact with other Clubs in surrounding areas or across the state for a variety of purposes including networking, community volunteer days & festivals or to co-sponsor fundraising events. We expect club sponsors to visit other clubs to share ideas and identify common goals that clubs can rally around to raise funds of awareness.

Compassion Clubs are semi-autonomous groups, required to adhere to a few simple guidelines to be recognized by the MMMA, but flexible to structure their organization, officers, activities and meetings to suit member need.

Clubs are not required to incorporate, or to become sanctioned by the MMMA, but clubs that do take advantage of incorporation will be eligible to participate in additional MMMA revenue-sharing programs.

M3A assists local sanctioned clubs by providing:

  • Speakers ready to address clubs on a wide range of topics
  • Help with community outreach and new member recruitment
  • Providing clubs with news and Information to educate and stimulate member discussion
  • Caregiver training and certification programs*
  • Help clubs identify revenue streams and fund raising opportunities
  • Help clubs understand how to get publicity
  • Supplies through our e-Services network*
