Food Distribution

Every monday

Franklin Wright Settlements has implemented a socially distanced food distribution program. Every Monday at 3:00 p.m., participants stay in their car lined up outside our Charlevoix location (3360 Charlevoix) while we put a food box in your car's cabin or trunk. If you don't have a car, you can still come. Just walk up and find someone in a FWS shirt.

Spirit of Brown

Sunday, december 19

During the Spirit of Brown event, Franklin Wright Settlements will meet at our Youthville location (7375 Woodward Avenue) and then go out into the community to distribute essential supplies to people without homes such as blankets, toiletries, and warm coats.

Resource Day

Sunday, december 19

Community members can visit to Franklin Wright Settlements' Youthville location (7375 Woodward Avenue) to learn more about how to apply for emergency energy and utility assistance, talk to healthcare providers, learn about low-income options for internet, cable, and phone service, and more. We will also provide literature on a variety of other services as well. We will also have coats available as well as access to our "free boutique" for families that may need clothing for day-to-day wear.
