GIVE BACK: Community Sharing: Helping the Community by hosting a Great Fundraiser on 3/13

Help the volunteers of Community Sharing end economic woes in Milford, Highland and parts of Wixom.

Community Sharing provided help to nearly twice as many individuals as it did just a year ago and in the month of December alone assistance was provided to over 900 area residents.

Current services include food and clothing distribution; emergency financial assistance; case management; financial counseling and budget management; family counseling; tutoring for children; job interviewing and skill coaching; assistance with transportation, utility shutoffs and evictions; support for medical, dental and pharmacy expenses; and gasoline vouchers.

Community Sharing also offers classes in self-esteem, budgeting and job skills, along with a scholarship program for eligible clients to cover GED expenses and college classes.

“We are dedicated to the mission of providing temporary support to those in need. We meet critical local needs that are often hidden. We provide motivation and encouragement while maintaining respect for the individual. Our goal is to help our clients achieve independence through their own initiative.”

Community Sharing will host the 5th annual “Go for the Green” fundraiser on Saturday, March 13, at the beautiful 59 West Grand Banquet Hall at 786 West Highland Road (M-59.)
The event will include a plated dinner, silent auction and live music from local pop/rock band Whack the Mole.
