Donations are Helping Patch Fight Hunger in St. Clair Shores

Donations are Helping Patch Fight Hunger in St. Clair Shores

Thanks to your generous donations, we've raised over $1,107 towards our goal of $10,000 to feed families in your area through our online food drive. This virtual food drive runs through Nov. 17 and is the first for the Gleaners Community Food Bank. The 30 Michigan Patch sites are proud and honored to be their first partner.

How can you get us closer to the goal? Click the shopping link below and select items from the virtual grocery shelves. When you check out, be sure to select a Patch from the drop down menu to ensure your donation is designated for that community. Gleaners says each dollar donated provides the equivalent of three meals for hungry families.
