The holiday season is upon us, and while this time of year is often busy, we are also reminded to slow down and take time to reflect on what’s important to us. For many, this includes giving back to the local community. If you’re thinking about giving this holiday season, here are a few ways you can help bring holiday cheer to neighbors in West Michigan and the Upper Peninsula!

Create a personal fundraiser

By starting a personal fundraiser, you can turn your favorite hobby, talent or passion into meals for those in need. Every dollar raised for Feeding America West Michigan enables us to provide 4 meals’ worth of food for neighbors facing hunger. Get started today.

Make Feeding America West Michigan your charity of choice on AmazonSmile

If you find yourself buying gifts through Amazon, this action is one you can take from the comfort of your own home. Select Feeding America West Michigan as your charity of choice on AmazonSmile to give back while you shop.

Design a team challenge

Coming together with those you love is one of the most cherished parts of the holidays. This year, make your gathering extra special by starting a team challenge to fundraise for Feeding America West Michigan! You can gather a group of friends, family, or co-workers to fight hunger together through a fundraiser.

Start a Facebook fundraiser

Engage your social media network by starting a fundraiser on Facebook. You can share why Feeding America West Michigan’s mission is important to you and what inspired you to start a fundraiser, and maybe you’ll inspire others to join you in the fight against hunger. You can update folks on your progress as a nice way to keep them involved.

Organize a food drive

One way to share the mission of Feeding America West Michigan as well as help stock our shelves is by organizing a food drive. Before you begin collecting food, check out our list of most needed items. Gathering items from this list helps to fill in any gaps the food bank may be currently experiencing. You can also consider combining a food drive with a fund drive to make an even greater impact!

Donate today

A very simple way to make a big difference is to donate directly to Feeding America West Michigan today. Every $10 donated provides 40 meals for neighbors experiencing hunger!

We wish you a joyful holiday season and extend our sincerest thanks for supporting Feeding America West Michigan as we work together to end hunger!
