CRAWFORD COUNTY COMMUNITY CHRISTIAN HELP CENTER
Nancy Goodyear, Director
300 Huron St., Grayling, MI 49738
How many staff do you employ?
2 paid employees, 13 volunteers
Began in 1992 as a way to combine multiple food pantries into one. Governed by a Board of Directors which consists of representatives from any church in Crawford County.
What product or service does your business provide?
We provide free food to anyone in need in Crawford County. Our services are not based on financial need. Anyone may come once per month and pick up a box of food. Clients are allowed to choose what they put into their box each time. The only criteria is that you must be a resident of Crawford County.
What is a product/service that you provide that people may not know?
We order our food products from the Food Bank of Eastern Michigan in Flint. We also take donations of non-perishable food and personal items. Family Fare donates all their day-old bread to the Help Center. We have a volunteer who brings fresh bread products from Sara Lee in Gaylord each week so our clients can receive a bag of bread products.
What is a unique fact about your business that people may not know?
We are a 501(c)(3) organization which means we are non-profit. We receive gifts, personal donations, and grants to help purchase the food we give out.
Additional information you wish to share?
We are open Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 11am-3pm. If you are interested in volunteering at the pantry or representing your church on our board, please email Nancy at email@example.com.
