MEIJER in Brighton will be starting up the SIMPLY GIVE PROGRAM from  February 14, 2021  through April 10, 2021.  During this time, when you purchase a Simply Give $10 Give Card, Meijer will add another $10 with it and give us $20.  On Saturday, March 13, 2021 and Saturday, April 3, 2021 are DOUBLE DAYS at MEIJER.  For every donation purchased, MEIJER double match Simply Give Card that is purchased.  A $100 donation on those two days would equal $300 coming to Bountiful Harvest.  Please mark your calendar!

We are so excited to have a new Food Drive Coordinator on board at Bountiful Harvest.  She will be leading the effort to coordinate food drives throughout your communities.  Please check out our website "Events Page" and our Facebook page for information on current Food Drives.  If you are interested in a Food Drive in your area - please contact Bountiful Harvest:  810-360-0271.  

Pet Food pantry off to a great success!
Donations can be made:
Tuesday through Friday 9:00am-4:00pm and Saturdays 9:00am-12:00pm.

Yes, I can barely believe it has been10 Years since we opened our doors.  We will celebrate once COVID allows.
We have so much going on.  Cross your fingers we can make it all happen. 
 Watch for more news of our “Bark In The Park” Event, hopefully, July 24th.  More news will be forthcoming in the coming months.  Just a hint of the event – Best in Show of your beautiful four legged family member, a run, and lots more.  Be sure to stay tuned.  Brighton Ford is sponsoring this event.  They love fur baby family members too.
We have a new Food Drive Coordinator, Vanessa She has hit the ground running with the first neighborhood food drive taking place in Howell.   Watch for her coming to your neighborhood or better yet, let her know you would like to hold a food drive.
will be running the  program again from February 14, 2021 until April 10, 2021.  They have added this campaign due to increased need with COVID.  The double days will be Saturday, March 13, 2021 and Saturday, April 3, 2021.  This means that on those two days Meijer will not only match the $10 donation and make it $20, they will instead add $20 to your $10 donation and make it $30. 
Brighton Ford held a Fill the Van Food Drive for us in January and it was a great success.  THANK YOU, BRIGHTON FORD.
For volunteering, go to Sign Up Genius, put Bountiful Harvest Inc in the search area and it will take you to our page.   You can sign up for the day, time and position of your choice.  We especially need help in the afternoon Tuesday through Friday.  Drivers are needed for Thursday and Friday afternoons. 


Rolling Thunder Motorcycle Club has been volunteering with the pantry on Thursdays for a year now.  They unload shipments and help around the pantry with whatever needs to be done.  Check out their video.
We are still looking for office help the first and third Saturday of the month.  We are also looking for a driver for Thursday’s.  The driver position is a ‘no contact’ position.

Have a Blessed Month

There are many ideas in the works – so please don’t forget to keep checking our Facebook and website for up-to-date information.

 Chez Vonz News!
By Michelle Benser, Chez Vonz Manager 

We are winding down the winter clothes, coats, etc.  If you are still in need, come on in and hopefully we will be able to have them for you.
We are now accepting Spring Clothes, shoes, etc. 
 Sign up for Easter Baskets has begun. 
Sign-up for Easter Baskets: March 2nd through March 19th. 
Pick-up Easter Baskets:  March 12th, 19th, 26th (Fridays) = 3:00pm-5:00pm & March 13th, 20th, 27th and April 4th (Saturdays) = 9:00am-12:00pm
It is working well having one client at a time come in for clothes, shoes, etc.   You must wear a mask and do a COVID screening (not test) before entering.  Please be diligent with how long you spend in picking out clothing as we can only allow one person in at a time.  You will be asked to leave and come back another time if you take too long.  We are extremely busy this time of year and with COVID it is even harder. 
Please bring your donations to the pantry Tuesday through Friday 10:00 am until 4:00 pm, Saturday 9:00 am until 11:30 am.  PLEASE DO NOT LEAVE DONATIONS OUTSIDE.  The animals or the weather will get to them and they will end up in the dumpster.   If you cannot come during our regular hours, please call and we will work with you on receiving the donations,
Our clothing store is open Tuesday through Friday from 3:00 pm to 5:00 pm and 9:00 am until 11:30 am on Saturday. 
We appreciate all you do.  Thank you so much for supporting our Clothing Ministry.
Without you we could not do this work.

Thank you!
