Changing Times, New Needs
Thursday, March 06, 2014


Imagine a time when you experienced a major life change – the excitement, the activity it incited, how it seemed to affect every single area of your life. SOS Community Services is experiencing something very similar with our shift to a choice pantry, an exciting and positive new direction for our food program. In the midst of all the excitement, we have found that the change in our food program has led to some changes in our volunteer needs. In the past, with your help, we were able to serve 471 families, representing 1,506 individuals in a single month. Right now, we need you to continue this help more than ever!

To see a full list of volunteer opportunities at the Food Pantry read more! Register as a volunteer today by contacting Marti at or (734) 484-9945.

The Ugly Mug Benefit
Wednesday, January 22, 2014


As the snow fell between West Cross Street and North Hamilton the Ugly Mug Cafe & Roastery staff were busy making hot lattes and hot chocolates for their customers. The local baristas chatted away about their holiday plans to their coffee customers as the annual holiday giving event was steadily approaching in mid-December.

“We’ve always looked forward to our holiday giving. In the past years, we’ve partnered with SOS by collecting items such as canned foods and other household items,” said Kayj Michelle, events manager of the Ugly Mug. “This year during our staff meeting our baristas decided they would like to donate their tips for the week and split it between SOS Community Services and FLY Children’s Art Center.”
