Winter Outerwear Collection

Kids In Coats Cropped

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.

Due to pandemic restrictions the only drop-off location for this program is the Duck Lake Center during office hours.  In addition, please wash or clean items and deliver in either a paper bag, on hangers or in a box (no plastic, please).

Christmas Program

Joy Of Giving Web

Community supporters are ask if they would like to gift give to children in need for Christmas. Supporters are provided with information about ages and associated gender of the children so they can shop with certain demographics in mind, then deliver the gifts to Community Sharing. In addition to gifts, some supporters choose to donate gift cards from Target, Walmart and/or Meijer, places that client families frequent.

Parents are invited to select gifts for their children, allowing them to be the gift giver. We provide shopping assistance and a gift wrapping station. The gifts are from supporters, hence they are free to clients.

Summer Lunch For Kids

Watermelon Summer Little Girl Eating Watermelon Food

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.

Back To School Clothing Drive

Barefoot Boy

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.
