Help Your Game by Helping Theirs
 

The Inn at St. John's of Plymouth is partnering with PCUW for our Back to School Supply Drive. Work on your golf game and help kids in the community.

The formula is simple:

  • Purchase a 18-hole round of golf
  • Bring a new backpack with 4 or more new school supplies
  • Enjoy a FREE 18-hole round for a later date

 
2014 Back to School Supply Drive
 

It's not unusual for low-income students to come to class without a pencil or pen with which to take notes. Plymouth Community United Way is trying to make sure less fortunate children are ready to learn by holding a Back to School Supplies Drive through Friday, August 15. New socks and underwear are needed as well.

"There are over 1600 students in the area who could benefit from this drive," said Marie Morrow, PCUW President. "It is a good way to help youth get a head start in September."

Morrow suggests parents purchase a few extra school supplies while shopping for their children.

For more information on how you can help, call (734) 453-6879, ext. 7 or email randi.williams@pcuw.org.

New school supplies may be dropped off at the PCUW office at 960 W. Ann Arbor Trail, Suite 2 in Plymouth.

 
2014 Music in the Air Concert Series
 

The Friday Night "Music in the Air" concert series continues throughout the summer and we will be there!

Concerts are Friday nights in Kellogg Park starting at 7:00PM.

The Plymouth Community United Way will have a tent located close to the northwest corner of the park where we will be selling bottled water and snacks starting around 6:15PM. Stop by for a treat or just to say hello.

Thank You Rake~N~Go Volunteers
 

Thank you to all of our volunteers who helped make 2014 Rake~N~Go a success!

Volunteers brought rakes, garden tools, hedge trimmers, and gloves. PCUW supplied yard waste bags. Everyone met at the First Methodist Church in Plymouth for a continental breakfast and worked until about noon throughout Plymouth and Canton.

PCUW organizes two raking events a year: Make a Difference Day in November and Rake~N~Go in April. More than 170 volunteers cleaned 35 yards of seniors and disabled persons. A group from Target is pictured below.

 
Your Donations at Work
 

 
Emergency Food Assistance Available
 

The next distribution of The Emergency Food Assistance Program (TEFAP) is scheduled for Thursday, July 17, at St. Kenneth Catholic Church.  TEFAP provides low-income Plymouth and Northville residents with supplemental items that are primarily canned and non-perishable.  

All recipients must be pre-registered. This is a supplemental food program so it may be used in addition to other assistance programs. Bridge Card holders automatically qualify, but need to register. Recipients not currently on governmental assistance (food stamps, ADC and general) need to provide documentation inluding proof of income, residence (Plymouth or Northville), and number of household members before receiving food on distribution days.
 
Distributions continue the third Thursday of each month from 9:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. at St. Kenneth Catholic Church in Plymouth. 
 
For information and to register, call the Plymouth Community United Way office at (734) 453-6879, ext. 7 or send an email to randi.williams@pcuw.org.
