This Giving Tuesday, your contribution will make an impact, whether you donate $5 or $500. Every little bit helps. Thank you for your support.
Mission for Area People serves with the Healthy Choice Food Pantry, Emergency Medical and Dental Fund, Clothing Pantry, Unmet Needs, Feet & Seat Covers (undergarments), Back to School, Thanksgiving Baskets, and the Teen Christmas.
Since 1967, MAP is a non-profit community-based organization committed to serving persons in Muskegon County with resources to meet basic needs, promote self-sufficiency, and improve the quality of life.
Each year, Mission for Area People partners with area churches, businesses, and other service organizations to provide Thanksgiving meals to families in need. Each family receives a basket with everything they need for a great home-cooked Thanksgiving dinner!
If you would like to donate items we will need the following: veggies, stuffing, cornmeal, canned fruit, jello, muffin mix, boxed dessert mixes, frosting, sweet potatoes, white potatoes, gravy, cranberry sauce, margarine, and turkeys! Volunteers who would like to pack the baskets please call the MAP office at 231-733-9672 to sign up to volunteer.
Volunteers pack baskets early in the week of Thanksgiving, starting after Food Pantry hours. Basket Giveaway is the week of Thanksgiving. We take calls to register for the Thanksgiving Baskets preceding Thanksgiving each year.
