Cheetos Club: Building Kindness in Petoskey

At McBride Remodeling, we don’t just build quality homes; we also help build strong communities. Our passion for supporting civic and charitable organizations is part of our core values of professionalism, relationship management, integrity, dedication, and excellence. One of our recent contributions was to Petoskey High School’s Cheetos Club — a group of students who carry out acts of kindness to fulfill their mission of “Planning to be Kind.” 

About Petoskey’s Cheetos Club

The Cheetos Club began in 2018 after Petoskey High School student Spencer Tibbits tragically passed away on his seventeenth birthday. Spencer was especially kind and caring and always looked for ways to help his fellow students going through challenging times. Spencer was known for giving a bag of Cheetos to anyone who seemed down, saying, “Nobody can be sad while eating Cheetos.” This became the inspiration for the Cheetos Club and all the acts of kindness done in Spencer’s honor. The group focuses on initiatives that make people smile, such as birthday bags, locker love, kindness kits, new student tours, teacher treats, and more.

Be Kind Bumper Stickers

As the Cheetos Club continues to grow, so does its impact on the community. When Dave McBride learned of it, he knew he wanted to support the organization so it could continue to create positive change. McBride Remodeling’s donation helped purchase Be Kind bumper stickers, which were distributed to community members by Petoskey Interfaith Common Ground. All the team members at McBride Remodeling proudly display these bumper stickers on our vehicles — a gentle reminder of the great need for compassion in our lives and the rippling effect of kindness. 

The Cheetos Club is making a big difference in the lives of Petoskey youth. With more support, its effects can reach even further. Interested in donating to this great cause? Click here to learn more about Cheetos Club and make a donation.
