Giving Pack is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that contributes to community success by providing supply packs and resources to individuals in need. Using a community-to-community approach, Giving Pack collaborates with schools, churches, and small businesses to fundraise and collect supplies. Working with a dedicated team of volunteers, we then create individualized relief packs that are sent to school systems, hospitals, and other institutions. Through collaborating with various organizations, Giving Pack works to promote volunteerism and instill a passion for community service in youth organizations throughout Michigan.
