The Gift of Giving

We are inviting 100 individuals to become “Friends of the Free Store” to support and sustain our organization with an annual gift of $100.

Why We Need Support

  • The yearly operating budget of rent and utilities, our highest expenditure, extends beyond our current financial means.
  • Our household cleaning and hygiene products are consistently in high demand and re-stocked monthly.
  • The on-going fundraising efforts of our volunteers cannot meet our modest operating expenses.

The Call to Action

  • To properly budget, we need yearly benefactors that we can count on.
  • We are looking for 100 people to donate $100 annually or we welcome donations in smaller increments throughout the year.
  • Your gift can be mailed to: The Free Store 2210 US Hwy 41 S, Ste. A , Marquette, MI 49855. Checks payable to: "The Free Store"
  • Please include your e-mail address to receive Free Store updates and newsletters.
