Our unique needs-based programs provide us with unique opportunities to work with and meet the urgent needs members of our community. From preparing children to be successful young students to helping families enjoy the holiday season, we take great pride in our ability to bring stability, warmth, and joy to those who need it most.
This program began in 2004 to help parents facing economic challenges send their children “back to school with a smile” along with clothing, backpacks and supplies.
Since 2004, the Winter Warmth program has purchased and distributed over 2,500 new winter coats to school children.
Our adopt a family program, Holiday Smiles, began in 2006 and thanks to our hard working volunteers and sponsoring companies, Share A Smile has helped hundreds of families have a happy December holiday in communities across Michigan.
