We are behind the scenes at MAP showing you what is given to our homeless friends in need. Diana Stubbs opens a care package with bed sheets, towels, wash cloths, toilet paper, and personal care items. MAP provides essentials to those struggling without resources. If you'd like to donate, please give our office a call at 231-733-9672. We accept new items or gently used and clean bed sheets. Toiletry packets are appreciated as well.
Mission for Area People may be able to help you during this time of uncertainty. Thanks to our community partners, we are able to assist with various needs. MAP’s staff will be available Monday, Wednesday, and Fridays from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. to answer your questions. You may reach us at 231-733-9672 to speak with us regarding food pantry, rental assistance, medical and pharmacy needs, or other requests.
As always, you may phone the Community Assess Information line (CALL 2-1-1), the three digit help line. This “one-stop” call center has the latest up to date information on other community resources such as Feeding America Food Truck schedule and COVID-19 benefits available.
