10 Ways to Help
Supporters of SOS Community Services have time and again proven to be creative, generous and amazingly energetic and resourceful. You or your group can support the work we do in literally dozens of ways. We encourage you to look over this list and see what fits your individual interests and abilities. If you are interested in helping in one of the ways below, please call (734) 484-9900 or email . And, if you have ideas for a future fundraiser, event, or other ways to help we'd love to hear from you!
- Host a Benefit Day – Select a day that a portion of your business sales or profits can go to support homeless families. If you have other creative ideas to raise funds contact us.
- Organize a Social Media Campaign – Do you love social networking sites? Are you passionate about homelessness? Start a social media campaign to raise awareness and collect donations.
- Adopt-a-Month – Collect food, baby supplies or personal care items.
- Denim Days Fundraiser – Work in comfort and help your community by organizing a weekly Denim Day at your workplace. Collect donations from participating co-workers who wear jeans to work on the designated day.
