SUMMER DOESN’T TAKE A HOLIDAY
1ST – JULY 18TH 2015
Community Sharing & Active Faith
Family YMCA is teaming up with the Huron Valley Rotary Club on the Feed A
Family. . .Fill A Truck Food Drive this summer. This food drive was originally
done in November and December but Community Sharing told us that the food drive
we have done for the last seven years has built awareness and they are good
with donations in the winter months. They have a huge need in the summer when
children are out of school and they are no longer receiving free or reduced
lunches. For some families summer is the hardest time of the year to feed their
family. This food drive will be the summer round up.
Hunger does not take a holiday. We are working with Community
Sharing that services the Milford and Highland Area and Active Faith which
serves the South Lyon Area to build awareness and implement a summer food drive
to collect nonperishable food for delivery to both organizations. Sellers Auto
Group from Farmington Hills has once again provided us with a truck or the
duration of the food drive. The food drive runs from July 1st to
July 18th, ending the day of our Hometown Hero Celebration
(Veterans' and First Responders' Picnic) We will have the truck in the Milford 4th
of July parade where we will be collecting food. We encourage ALL parade
attendees to bring their non perishable food items to the parade and drop them
off. We will have an update for locations on Main Street where the food can be
dropped. We are asking our community to reach out to this food drive and help
support those friends and neighbors in our communities that have a need. No one
should go hungry. Below are the items most needed. Can
you please help?
