COVID-19 Info & Resources

How can I help those in need?

  • The State of Michigan and Governor Whitmer created a volunteer website that you can use to find out how/where you can help in your communities.
  • The Red Cross is experiencing a severe blood shortage and is in immediate need of blood donors. If you are healthy, please consider donating blood.
  • One of Oakland County's largest nonprofits, Lighthouse, is in need of food and supplies for local families. If you are able, or if you bought too much food while you were stocking up, please consider donating.
  • United Way of Southeastern Michigan has teamed up with corporations, nonprofits, and foundations to create a COVID-19 community response fund to address many needs and shortages for those in the area.
  • Gleaners Community Food Bank operates distribution centers in Wayne, Oakland, Macomb, Livingston, and Monroe counties, providing food to over 500 partner soup kitchens. If you are able, please consider donating to get food to those who need it.
