As part of our Outreach to the under-served communities in Washtenaw County, we support the efforts of the Ypsi Gathering Place. They are in need of clothing and supplies for the spring and summer season. Matt Hoostal has shared the following:

The Ypsi Gathering Space (YGS) is a cooling center for our community members experiencing housing or food insecurity. We are located at 76 N. Huron (at the Riverside Arts Center on the intersection of Pearl and Huron) in Ypsilanti. As we are 100% volunteer run, we rely on the generosity of donors and volunteers. Our wish list items are attached. We are open Friday 5-8:00, Saturday 12-5:00, and Sunday 3-6:00. We will be holding volunteer trainings every Saturday from 1-2:00 pm at YGS. For questions about donations or volunteering, please contact Kim at
