United Ways across Michigan are participating in a first-ever statewide event to collect food in their areas, for their areas throughout the month of June.

Every year, food pantries across Northern Michigan are fully stocked in the winter months thanks to generous holiday donations—

but when summer comes, donations drop considerably and pantry shelves become sparse. This can leave low-income, hard-working families with limited options during this time of year.

Otsego County United Way asks local businesses and community members to participate in our “Summer Stock Up” event to restock local food pantries with items to get them through the warmer months.

Join United Way in bringing some cheer to local pantries this June!
