Morrow adds up service years

Marie Morrow remembers transcribing minutes from Board of Directors’ meetings of the Plymouth Community Fund on a typewriter. Two organizational name changes and 32 years later, Morrow leads the nonprofit now known as Plymouth Community United Way.

A lot has changed since Morrow was hired by the nonprofit organization, but not the mission. The focus remains to reach out and serve human needs in Plymouth, Canton and Western Wayne County.

“It’s been challenging over the years, taking it from a totally volunteer organization to the professional organization it is today,” said Morrow, Plymouth Community United Way president. “It’s a business. We’re in the business of helping people and helping make the community a vibrant place to live, work and raise a family. We’re making a difference in people’s lives.”

Host a Food Drive

Are you, your business, or group looking to support the community? Why not partner with Plymouth Community United Way and hold a food drive in support of our local food pantries. With school out for summer there are increased requests for food to supplement families. Many of children of these families have been receiving breakfast and lunch through free and reduced food programs at their school.

For more information contact Randi @ 734-453-6879 x7, or

Music in the Air Concert Series

Emergency Food Assistance Available

The next distribution of The Emergency Food Assistance Program (TEFAP) is scheduled for Thursday, July 16, 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

Annual Meeting thanks businesses, community

Marie Morrow opened the Plymouth Community United Way (PCUW) Annual Meeting and Awards Presentation with a heartfelt thank you to Johnson Controls and the nearly 100 business and community leaders in attendance March 27, at Comcast NBC Universal in Plymouth.

More than 70 Key Contributors and volunteers were honored along with Johnson Controls, which received a special award for 25 years of giving at the Platinum level, the highest level of corporate contributions.

"Without this support, many services would have been cut or nonexistent including basic needs such as food, rent and utility assistance," said Morrow, PCUW President. Read more
