Associated Charities is proud to be serving Lenawee County for 101 years, relying on donations and without any state or federal monies.The goal of Associated Charities’ is to provide low income families with an opportunity to meet basic needs without stigma and judgment and to move towards self-sufficiency. This is done by providing each pre-qualified client with shopping opportunities for basic needs such as: clothing, shoes, school supplies, housewares, educational/training opportunities, furniture, work/interview items, food and personal hygiene products at no cost to them. These items allow families to begin the day with hope, self-confidence and positive feelings without fear of not being able to provide some of the basic necessities for their selves/families. ACLC will utilize these funds to continue serving Lenawee County. Examples of how your donation will help include: a $100 donation will provide gifts and dinner for a family at Christmas, a $50 donation will provide a Baby Bundle for new parents, a $25 donation will provide a backpack filled with school supplies and a $10 donation will give a child a new toy on their birthday.
