Important Notice

 

Please note - Starting Tuesday, July 15, the entire parking lot at Apollo will be under construction. This project will last 3-4 weeks. We will all have to modify our routine and make adjustments. 

Volunteers are asked to car pool as much as possible. The following areas can be used for parking:

  • Highland Family Chiropractic (east side of Milford Rd just north of Apollo)
  • The small church with the white fence (next to Highland Family Chiropractic)
  • Along the drive/road to Midwest Glass (west side of Milford Rd. south of Apollo)
  • Grassy burn just south of the Apollo south lot.

Clients will be given boxes of food as they will remain in their vehicle at the south end of Apollo. The clothing department will be closed. Casework will be handled as needed as there are limited parking spaces available in the south lot for clients.

Donations will be accepted during this time but people will need to unload their vehicles at the south end of the building. Volunteers will need to be stationed outside to receive donations. If you have donations that can wait to be brought in, it will be appreciated.

Thanks for your patience and cooperation. This project was decided by the school district and we urge you to make the best of this situation. 

 

Community Sharing Offers a Wide Range of Assistance

 
Our goal is to provide assistance to those in need, while also developing life skills to help empower those who need assistance.
 

The Light from One Candle

 
 

All the darkness in the world cannot put out the light from one small candle. Community Sharing is striving to be that candle.  Through our food pantry we are currently feeding over 1000 men, women and children.  Through our pet pantry we are feeding over 400 pets.

Through the generous donations of the local community, Community Sharing provides food, clothing, emergency shut-off services, referrals and advocacy for residents of  Milford, Highland and the Stratford Villa and Commerce Meadows mobile home parks in Wixom, MI.

 

What We Do

 

Community Sharing, located in Highland Twp, MI, was created in 2004 by expanding the scope of Community Resource Sharing which was primarily a food pantry serving the Milford area. Upon its creation, various area churches and organizations joined the core planning group and board. The primary focus was to continue the food pantry while exploring other areas of assistance that would be beneficial to the community. Community Sharing has expanded it's services to providing food, clothing, assistance with evictions, utility shut-offs, and other emergencies, referrals to other agencies, advocacy, and tutoring (K-12) for eligible residents of Milford, Highland, and the Stratford Villa and Commerce Meadows mobile home communities in Wixom. Helping all clients to achieve financial independence is the ultimate goal of Community Sharing. 

 

The People We Help

 
We help the recently unemployed, the working poor, low income seniors, people with disabilities and others who qualify.

In 2013, Community Sharing assisted an average of 286 local families per month with an average of 11 new families added monthly.
