Financial Donations Accepted Through Meridian Cares

Donate Meridian Cares

During this time of COVID-19, many businesses and organizations are reducing staffing or closing in order to keep loved ones and neighbors safe. Township officials know these changes will impact hundreds of Meridian Township residents who, under normal circumstances, struggle to make rent, pay utilities and buy essential care items every month.

Under normal circumstances, with generous donations from the community, Meridian Cares helps approximately 60-70 households with financial assistance to pay for rent or utilities and refers hundreds more to other agencies. However, the current situation is not usual or normal, and the Meridian Cares Team knows even more people are going to find themselves needing assistance to make it through this unusual time. The Township is expecting that an unprecedented number of households in Meridian will need help in the immediate future.

During a time of crisis, it is natural to come together and do what we can to alleviate the uncertainty and stress our loved ones and neighbors may be facing.  Although we cannot come together physically right now, we can help in other ways.  Your donation will help to keep a family in their home or keep electricity on, and give some relief to a family that needs it here in Meridian Township.

Please join Meridian Cares and Township leaders to make a difference by giving some certainty to families that need it. You can donate online, or you can send your donation to Meridian Cares.
