COVID-19 and St. Christine Christian Services
While COVID-19 has greatly impacted our community, St. Christine Christian Services remains committed to assisting those who come to our door with respect and dignity.
During a brief shut down we revamped our operations to help keep our volunteers and neighbors safe. Starting May 5th, we are reopening with updated policies, procedures, and best practices to safely continue our essential work during the pandemic. For those seeking assistance, please click here to see our Updates to Service During COVID-19 page to learn about our updated services and procedures.
St. Christine’s work has always been made possible by our community of generous supporters. However, COVID-19 has challenged our traditional means of support – closed churches means less support from parishes; stricter social distancing means less volunteers are allowed to help; our spring fundraiser that would normally bring us close together to celebrate must be cancelled; and the changes in the food system of groceries and restaurants means reduced excess food is available and therefore reduced donations to food pantries like ours.
Our staff, volunteers, and clients have all so far risen to the occasion and will continue to provide groceries, hot meals, and hope for each other. While COVID-19 has impacted everyone, if you find yourself blessed to be in a financial situation that would allow you to support St. Christine’s, your generosity would be appreciated now more than ever. If you are able, please consider donating via the link below, or by check made out to St. Christine Christian Services mailed to 16805 Pierson St., Detroit, MI 48219.
We the people of St. Christine Christian Services, are committed to serving our neighbors in the City of Detroit. We will assist those who come to our door with respect and dignity. With the help of God and the generosity of our benefactors, we will continue the charitable works begun before us in 1954.
