Press Release
Smokey Crystal Spins off a new branch

Non-Profit Opening its doors for business soon.

Lincoln Park, MI, December 12, 2013: Having a small business retail store open in today’s slow economy is not easy, but The Smokey Crystal, LLC in Woodhaven, MI has been making a successful go at it. While having the store open, it became evident to Anna Calhoun, Storeowner, that there was a growing need for services to those experiencing financial hardship. Therefore, back in August, Anna sat down with her husband Gerald and together they began carefully sketching out a plan. They have teamed up with some wonderfully skilled people and are moving forward.

We are proud to announce the launch of The Michigan Council of Covens and Solitaires (MCCS). Our Mission is to promote networking, community building, and assistance for the Pagan community of Southeastern Michigan and the surrounding region. MCCS also provides education about Paganism and outreach to the broader community. Our goal is to promote unity, equality, and acceptance for all spiritual paths. This Mission will be carried out through organized committees that will cover areas including, but not limited to:

Assistance Pantry (Food, Pet, Toiletries), Building projects (Small home repairs), Educational Opportunities (Public Library, Guest Speakers, Classes), Religious offerings (Open Circles, Spiritual Counseling, Ministerial assistance, Coven/Organization guidance), and to help support other organizations with a compatible purpose.

This mission has already begun with the launch of The Adopt-a-Family program. With this program, four families have stepped forward from the local geographical area, seeking assistance. We have chosen one family in particular, but we are attempting to help all four families at least improve their holiday season. There have been some donations of shelf stable food items, clothing, and money.

We still are in need of much more to help. More information about this program and what is needed can be found at or Donations can be made in person through the Go Fund Me site, or contact us to find out other ways to make a donation.

Future fundraising efforts will be announced as will volunteer and service opportunities. When we have our grand opening to our building location, we will make that announcement too. Until then, M.C.C.S. can be contacted via email at, our website at, or by calling 586-436-2277.
