Review for Associated Charities of Lenawee County, Adrian, MI, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Associated Charities is the only charity that does not charge for their products. They also collaborate with other agencies in the community so they don't duplicate services. I am proud to have Associated Charities in our community.

Associated Charities is there for the community when needed. There have been several instances that I have had to call on them to help out persons in dire need of winter coats and they have always said YES, send them over! It didn't matter that these individuals were not registered clients of AC. They were helped anyway. That is what community is all about....helping those that need it...without judgment...that's my experience with Associated Charities.

Associated Charities is the only organization in our county that does not charge for their services. They support the community in several ways but one that most people may not be aware of is that we strongly encourage collaboration between other agencies in the community, thus reducing duplication of services. This also helps to ensure more people are served. As all agencies know, funding is difficult and any way we can work together for the good of everyone is a win win situation. This is an organization I am proud to be a part of and encourage everyone to check them out.

Associated Charities is one of the few Charities that do not require the customer to purchase anything. All items that AC distributes is free. It is also comforting to know that if someone in our community has a crisis, like a fire etc., they can count on the Charities to help them out in the short term. They are totally dependent on the generosity of the community for their funding.

I joined the Associated Charities Board because I liked the idea of giving without cost. We already have organizations in our community that people can donate to in which they then sell the product at a great savings, thus making money for their program to support itself. Associated Charities gives everything they get for nothing. I know there are times when parents have to make a choice to purchase shoes or clothing for their children or feed them dinner. This is also true for senior citizens. They can go to the Charities and get what they need and not worry about how they are going to pay for it.

Each new school year children get new clothes, backpacks, school supplies, at no cost to the family. At Christmas time parents get food baskets and gifts for their children.

When I'm there, everyone is treated with respect and dignity. It makes me feel good knowing that, in a very small way, I'm helping others to have a better standard of life.

Have all the communities in Lenawee County know of this wonderful organization and what they have to offer.
