-   THEY DESERVE ONLY THE BEST    -
FROM THE COUNTRY THEY HAVE SWORN TO PROTECT

I SUPPORT THE 1%' is a Food Pantry for United States Military to Include Those on Active Duty, National Guard,

Coast Guard, Reservists of all Branches, and Veterans: Active, Separated, and Retired, Throughout Michigan.

 

WHO WE ARE

WE INVITE YOU TO JOIN US

“I Support the 1%” is a group of concerned citizens who have become aware of the economic hardships suffered by many of the military members stationed in our area.

Because they are called to leave home at a moment’s notice, many find their jobs taken by others when they return.  Many have a hard time finding gainful employment due to prejudice against their military requirements and/or the poor economic reality of this area.

Many are homeless and are tortured by memories of the battles they were in, and have difficulty readjusting to civilian life. Many find it difficult to reconcile their dual existence: military at times, civilian at times.

Because of this, we have banded together to provide relief to our local active duty and veteran members among us.

The goal of “I Support the 1%” is simple. We aim to establish a funding source to support a year-round food pantry just for military personnel.

 

We welcome your support and help.  Our returning Veterans and Active Duty Personnel deserve only the best from the country they have sworn to protect.

Please look into donating!
