Plymouth Community United Way has kicked off its 2012 Campaign to raise money for partner agencies and grant recipients who provide basic needs and resources for residents of Plymouth, Canton and the western Wayne area. The agency is reaching out to individuals, businesses, industry, and professionals to make a donation or run a campaign at the office. Everyone benefits when families are financially stable and healthy.
Last year, in addition to funding partner agencies, Plymouth Community United Way organized Make a Difference days to clean yards of senior citizens and people with disabilities, and collected new hats, scarves, mittens, and gloves, and food for those in need.
Donations can be made to Plymouth Community United Way, 960 W. Ann Arbor Trail, Suite 2, Plymouth, MI 48170. For information, call (734) 453-6879.
Visit www.plymouthunitedway.org to learn about the partner agencies such as Angela Hospice, First Step, The Salvation Army Plymouth Corps, Community Opportunity Center, Human Service Collaborative, Growth Works, and many others. The nonprofits offer a variety of services from food pantries to bus transportation for seniors, housing for adults with developmental disabilities, programs and shelter for domestic violence victims and their children, grief counseling, and opportunities for Girl Scouts and Boy Scouts to develop skills and become valuable members of the community.
Together we can accomplish what no individual or organization can do alone.
Serving the Plymouth and Canton community since 1944, Plymouth Community United Way addresses human service needs of individuals and families.
