Food and Clothing Donations
Please contact us before you begin a food drive. We will provide you with important information and guidelines to make your food drive successful. We get donations from retailers, wholesalers and the food industry as well as from community members. We contract with Food Gatherers and Forgotten Harvest for additional items. Contact us if you have food to donate. These contributions are vital to the success of our mission. Food donations are accepted from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday, Wednesday and Thursday. ITEMS LEFT OUTSIDE AFTER HOURS WILL BE DISCARDED. Please call us at 248-437-9790 to let us know you are planning to drop off clothes.
