SEASONAL PROJECTS ARE A GREAT WAY TO PARTICIPATE
Winter Outerwear Collection
Community Sharing annually collects new and gently used coats and boots for both adults and children as well as snow pants for children of all ages.
Please wash or clean items and deliver in either a paper bag, on hangers or in a box (no plastic, please).
Community supporters are asked to donate gift cards from Target, Walmart or Meijer in denominations of their choice. The gift cards are then provided only to clients with children and after case workers verify the family's need. Parents are then able to purchase appropriate Christmas gifts for their children and cheerfully celebrate the holiday because community members cared about their neighbors.
Summer Lunch For Kids
Children who receive government sponsored free lunch during the school year cannot always find transportation to the free lunch programs during the summer break. So, volunteers package lunch for each client's child and distribute to families when they visit the food pantry. Lunch items, bags and bagging help are always needed.
Summer Lunch Ideas
Back To School Clothing Drive
Volunteers collect school clothing and shoes, all summer long throughout the Milford and Highland areas. Some community members have shoe drives or donate to purchase items that need to be new such as underwear. This project helps us offer a free shopping day for kids prior to the beginning of school.
There are many other opportunities in our community to participate in seasonal projects.
Watch for them on our Facebook page.
- Designate Community Sharing as your Kroger Community Reward.
- 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.
- Walk with us at the "Crop Hunger Walk" in October.
- "Stamp Out Hunger" by leaving non-expired, non-perishable food at your mailbox the second Saturday in May.
