AL-ANON

By sharing common experiences and applying the Al-Anon principles, families and friends of alcoholics can bring positive changes to their individual situations, whether or not the alcoholic admits the existence of a drinking problem or seeks help.

FOOD PANTRY

MPC's food pantry works with the Midland County Emergency Food Pantry Network (EFPN), a nonprofit organization that coordinates eight local pantries. Our pantry operates on a "you pick" basis. Clients work through the EFPN to make an appointment to come in and choose a week's worth of items based on the size of their families. People interested in help must contact the EFPN directly by calling 989-486-9393.
