Community Sharing of Lewiston

Posted By: Jean Czopek (July 15, 2016)
Community Sharing is a non-profit group in Lewiston in Northern Michigan. It was founded by three local churches who oversee the group. It has two buildings and distributes food, clothing and other household items for those in need in our area. With winter coming, the need for help with utilities becomes especially critical. The need in our community has increased dramatically in recent years. An award from this group will greatly increase our ability to serve the needs of the many families who rely on us for basic needs and keep our children warm this winter. We also provide backpacks and school supplies as well as warm coats and boots for our families. Each year for Christmas, Easter and Thanksgiving we serve hundreds of people stretching our funds very thin. Your grant would be much appreciated.
