There are many ways all year long
for you to participate.
Find your way to help Community Sharing.
#1 - Participate in an Individual Way
Clothing or Shoe Drive
Conduct a food or clothing drive at your church or organization. Collect items you would be proud to donate.
Host a Donation Party
Host a simple meal and ask guests to bring a food or hygiene donation instead of a dish to pass.
Pay It Forward Gift Giving
Ask your family and friends to donate food, underwear, socks, diapers, etc. for your birthday instead of personal gifts.
Shop Our Garage Sale
Shop our April and September garage sales. Find treasures as well as the practical: furniture, kitchen items, linens, home decor and sometimes, literally, the "kitchen sink." Oakland County's best!
Enjoy Our Fundraisers
By attending our fundraising events you contribute to keeping our doors open to help families. All our events are run by volunteers, keeping expenses to a bare minimum.
Share Your Summer Produce
Grow an extra row for CS clients: fresh produce is such a treat. Lettuce, green beans, squash, radishes, cherry tomatoes, potatoes and carrots are favorites.
#2 - Participate in Seasonal Projects
Summer Lunch for Kids
For various reasons, not all children are able to participate in Michigan's free summer lunch program. For those children, we offer food for 20 lunches for one month.
Back to School Clothing
Shop from a child's Christmas wish list or choose several children - it's up to you. Wrap and donate. All names are confidential. It feels great!
#3 - Participate in Community Projects
Our community partners have seasonal projects too - more great ways to participate.
- Watch for special times when Meijer offers the "Simply Give" program.
- Donate when "Bringing Hope to the Table" is conducting a drive at Milford Kroger each January.
- Walk with us at the "Crop Hunger Walk" in October.
- Do the "Milford Easter Dash" each year, the Saturday before Easter.
- "Stamp Out Hunger" by leaving non-expired, non-perishable food at your mailbox the second Saturday in May.
- Annually designate Community Sharing as your Kroger Community Reward.
Participate by volunteering for fundraisers, special projects or become a tutor!
