READ: Macomb Community Action works to help people during COVID-19 pandemicIn Macomb County, various services have lost volunteers so agencies are backfilling with county employees to pick up the slack. The need for community assistance is still growing -- there are people who have never needed food assistance before reaching out for help. Macomb Community Action is now pooling federal grant money, private donations and funds almost anywhere they can find them to support food pantries. Macomb Community Action is working to find equipment to outfit more than 70 food pantries to assist them in their expansion.
