Our Charity PArtner
Hunger is a big problem. It affects thousands of people throughout West Michigan and the Upper Peninsula, including 1 in 5 children. But the good news is that you can make a big difference. Every dollar you give to Feeding America West Michigan allows us to provide 4 meals to our neighbors in need. A gift of $21 can even feed a family of four for an entire week. So give today. Because together we can solve hunger!
You have just as much fun being a Whovillian as you do running our event. Register to volunteer today!
