Christmas in June banner.png

Every year, across Southwest Michigan, food pantries see themselves fully stocked in the winter months and holiday season. However, when summer hits, food donations go down and their shelves are harder to keep stocked. This can leave low-income, hard working families with very few options. We are asking local businesses to help us stock the local food pantries with items (IN GROUPS OF 100) to help them through the summer months.  We will be collecting all the items on June 20 and June 21 and we will have drop-off locations at:

Upton Middle School, 800 Maiden Ln. St. Joseph, MI 49085

Buchanan Middle School Cafeteria, 610 W 4th St. Buchanan, MI 49107

Brookside Learning Center, 61662 Dailey Rd, Cassopolis, MI 49031

Our participation in this global Day of Action will bring some much needed cheer to local families, and those in our community who serve them.
