HAPPY HOLIDAYS ~ WE WILL BE CLOSED NOVEMBER 23, DECEMBER 25 & 26, 2017 AND JANUARY 1 & 2, 2018
COMMUNITY SHARING OUTREACH CENTER
Our food pantry is located at 5061 N. Duck Lake Road in Highland, Michigan. We are a non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization that has been providing food and financial support to those in need in our community since 2004. We assist our neighbors who reside in the Huron Valley School District of Oakland County. We are primarily a volunteer based organization, with over 200 volunteers, which means ninety cents of every dollar spent can go directly to client services. We service approximately 720 men, women and children each month.*
We help the recently unemployed, the working poor, families in poverty, low income seniors, people with disabilities and others who qualify. We have many special programs that specifically assist the children of Community Sharing's clients that will improve their health, welfare and, we hope, happiness. With a focus on the next generation we offer tutoring in the fight against inter-generational poverty, knowing that education is the road to self-sufficiency.
Community Sharing is surrounded and held by a loving community. Time, energy and finances from our supporters allow us to provide a broad range of services to financially distressed families. There isn't a month that goes by that someone in Highland or Milford offers some form of charitable endeavor... a coat and boot drive, a p.j.s for kids collection, a back-to-school clothing drive, or a canned food drive for the Holidays. And, we know that little things matter... in the month of a client's child's birthday, an age appropriate gift bag is provided through non-monetary donations. It is filled with a cake mix, frosting, paper plates, candles, decorations and a special gift. Everyone's birthday needs to be celebrated with family and friends!
