SOS Benefits from Coat Check
Tuesday, March 01, 2016


SOS participated at the Ann Arbor/Ypsilanti Regional Chamber’s Foundation Gala providing the coat check for guests. The Gala was at Washtenaw Community College with this year’s theme set as Hawaiian Luau! Dressed in Hawaiian shirts and grass skirts community members participated in the silent auction, enjoyed food and beverages and partook in the entertainment activities like the photo booth. With generous contributions from attendees SOS raised over $300 in donations to benefit our programs!

Special thanks to the A2Y Chamber for allowing SOS to host the coat check!



SOS Food Pantry Expands Services
Tuesday, February 16, 2016


SOS Community Services expanded food pantry services starting in January 2016. Previously, people could access the food pantry a maximum of six times per calendar year, but now people can access the pantry twelve times per year.

“We are seeing an increase in need for food,” says Marti Lachapell, food pantry coordinator at SOS. “90 percent of the people we serve are at 100 percent of poverty or less. This means for a family of 4 their annual income is $23,850 or less.”
