A Special Winter Announcement
As cold winter weather settles in, we all look forward to cozy evenings with family and friends. With that also comes awareness that cold weather can be dangerous. We sincerely want winter commodity distributions to be as safe as possible for everyone. To that end I’d like to share a few thoughts:
We strongly encourage you to arrive for your distribution at the scheduled start time. We stay at every site until all customers who arrived during the scheduled distribution time have been served. Lining up before a distribution starts is not necessary, and more importantly, is potentially dangerous in this cold weather.
Our truck crew is dedicated and works hard to get food out, even when the weather is bad. If we must cancel a distribution, we work to get the word out in several ways. Cancellations will be posted on our Facebook and local TV stations. If you receive reminder robocalls, you will also receive a call notifying you of cancellation. We will announce the day and time for a make-up distribution as soon as possible.
If you feel that it is not safe to travel for a distribution, please contact us at 989-386-3805 for other options. We may be able to serve you at a different public distribution or at our Clare Warehouse.
