If you like to work in the kitchen, you can volunteer with a group to prepare a meal or help serve.


If you have social work skills, you can help assess the needs of residents and help them get services.


If you have computer skills, you can help keep our old computers working. Computer monitors and teachers are also needed to help supervise and help clients do job searches, set up/read email, or create a resume.


If you have a vehicle and/or a strong back, we need volunteers on Mondays in the food pantry to unload trucks of donations and then sort them. Tuesdays when the pantry is open, we need volunteers to help carry groceries for seniors or those with disabilities, to their cars.

How can I donate non-perishable items for the food pantry?


You many bring your items to the food pantry on Mondays. For delivery other days, please call (313) 995-8673 so we can arrange for someone to be there to meet you.

How can I make a monetary donation to help continue this important work?


You may mail a check to St. Christine Christian Services, 15317 Dacosta, Detroit, MI 48223 with “SCCS donation” in the memo line, or if you prefer to donate online with a credit or debit card using PayPal click here.
