Neighborhood House had over 500 families register for our back to school supplies this past summer. We help the children "Blast Off 2 School" in Rochester, Rochester Hills, Auburn Hills, Oakland Township, Leonard and Lakeville.
For the Holiday season, we have a large "Giving Tree" program that serves approximately 500 families. Children are able to request two gifts that we add to the "giving tree." Generous community members then shop for these gifts. On the day of the event, parents are able to pick up the presents for each of their children, along with pajamas, cold weather gear, books, stocking stuffers, stuffed animals, and more.
We also have community members who create and donate Easter baskets for our clients.
For Thanksgiving, we have generous community members to help us to provide families with turkey dinners.
In addition to national holidays, we like to celebrate birthdays! Our clients are able to pick up a cake kit at the food pantry (eggs, cake mix, frosting, candles, etc.) as well as a new toy from the birthday room at the Clothes Closet to celebrate their child's birthday.
If you are interested in being a a part of any of these special programs, please contact Sally at firstname.lastname@example.org.
