Summer Send-Off Food and Supply Drive 


According to Feeding America, one in seven Michigan children is systematically hungry. Rebekah Bellgowan, a local philanthropist, is doing her part to fix that with a food and supply drive. She’s asking for non-perishable food; personal hygiene items such as razors, soap, shampoo, conditioner and feminine hygiene products; and gently used summer clothes and footwear.  

If you’d like to make a donation, you can drop off items at 1714 W. Kalamazoo St. 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday (May 31) through Friday (June 2). The distribution will happen noon to 5 p.m. Saturday (June 3) in Sexton High School’s parking lot, and community members are welcome to stop by and pick up items they need. 

If you’d like to help organize items, make baskets or assist with distribution, contact Bellgowan at 517-513-5046 or
