CARES of Farmington Hills began because three community leaders couldn’t bear to let the local food pantry close, cutting off food security for those in need. CARES quickly grew into a true “Campus of Hope” providing food for Farmington area individuals through its food pantry and the new Busch’s CARES Market. It also offers access to community and county support services and other programs for wellness.
With the changes and challenges of the last few years, CARES is currently serving over 1,600 monthly guests compared to 1,200 just one year ago. As the holiday season looms, the nonprofit’s volunteers are working hard to be ready for the neighbors who will need the most support in the coming months.
On October 19, the Grateful Plateful Dinner will return. CARES will host its annual event at the Huron River Hunting & Fishing Club. Each sponsorship level outlines the tangible effects of the support, with the Silver Plate level being able to feed 60 people for one month and the Family Platter feeding 400 people!
Wright Beamer values the many organizations that make our community better. If you are able, please consider how you can help CARES of Farmington Hills keep plates full this holiday season for local families. Visit the event page to find out more.
