Common Questions

Should I notify Active Faith first?
Please do! We have a form called the Special Event Program Disclosure that we can email to you. Also, we'd like to help or suggest things that others have successfully done holding Food Drives. We like to be prepared to receive your items when you drop off. Prior notice helps us get ready.

Who do we contact and how?
You can email us your questions from the contact us page or call 248-437-9790 and we will respond on an Active Faith work day. (Monday, Wednesday, Thursday from 10:00 a.m to 5:00 p.m.).

What does Active Faith need donated?

Active Faith is calling on individuals and/or community groups to "Grow A Row" of vegetables in their home garden, to be donated to Active Faith and distributed to people in need. When crops ripen, growers will deliver them to Active Faith. These fresh, locally grown and nutrient-dense vegetables will then be distributed to Active Faith clients on the 2nd and 4th Mondays of the month. Please join us in combating food insecurity and in nourishing families and children in our community.
