Eligibility: If you are an Active Faith food pantry client with children living in your home.
We are excited to have you come to our first Christmas Toy Shop where you will be able to pick out a gift for a child living in your home. We will also have a section for the kids to pick out a gift for their parent/guardian(s). (No peeking allowed). We will be serving cookies and cocoa for you to enjoy and will have an optional wrapping station in case you want to just take it home and put it right under the tree. Santa will be there between 2:00 pm and 4:00 pm so bring the kids to see him.

" Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.”
Even a small gift can make a BIG difference. "No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted."
Your gift of time helps hungry families eat. "Only by giving are you able to receive more than you already have."
Learn about our currently planned events! It's a great way to have fun and help others.
Our mission is to provide long term and temporary assistance to those who have fallen on difficult times in hopes of returning them to the independent pursuit of their life’s goals.
Serving Your Community
Active Faith Community Services helps people in need who reside primarily in the South Lyon Community School District. This 83 square mile area covers six different municipalities including parts of Oakland, Livingston and Washtenaw Counties.
We had over 3,500 food pantry visits in 2021! On average we service over 400 individuals per month. Over 100 children received backpacks and school supplies. Warm winter coats were provided to over 100 families. We also provide toilet paper, cleaning products and hygiene products.
Active Faith is continually changing to meet the needs of the community. We are an information and referral center for food, clothing, and utility assistance from other agencies. Contact us and we can direct you to the right agencies even though you may not fit into our financial guidelines.
