What Summer Slow-Down?

Summer time is time to slow down- the hectic pace of the school year takes a pause. We want to enjoy the summer weather and events.  However at the food pantries requests continue to come in.  Children are home for lunch, putting extra strain on the family’s food budget.  We hope that you will continue to support our organization with donations of food, money and volunteer time during these days of summer.  Food requests do not take a break for those in need. If you know of anyone in need of food, please have them call 211 or 989-486-9393.
