Michiganders and businesses can donate items needed most by Michigan schools and nonprofit organizations serving vulnerable populations. Many facilities throughout Michigan are facing shortages of personal protective equipment. Donations for essential items will be used to meet the most pressing needs during the COVID-19 pandemic. Below are the material donations needed most by these facilities.
The Michigan Community Service Commission can be contacted at COVID19donations@michigan.gov or 517-335-4295.
Monetary donations to Michigan’s COVID-19 Response and Recovery Initiative will support critical services for Michiganders impacted by the pandemic. Funds will be distributed through the State Emergency Operations Center established process, based on critical needs. Funds may be allocated to provide food and water, education support for children, and other essential activities as more needs are identified. Donating to the State of Michigan will help leverage federal resources, including FEMA funds, that require a match.
Donations of any size can be made by credit/debit card. If your donation exceeds $25,000 and you wish to discuss the processing of your contribution, contact the Michigan Community Service Commission at COVID19donations@michigan.gov or 517-335-4295.
