The effects Coronavirus has on our community

The Clarkston Community Center is a place of refuge and safety for thousands of people. The community relies on us in times of need, and now, more than ever is our chance to come together in a time of uncertainty. There is no other way to say it, but we need your help. The majority of the residents in Clarkston live under the poverty line with  1 in 2 children living in poverty.

We ask that you consider donating to the Clarkston Community Center, in order to help us provide the necessities and resources for the families of Clarkston who desperately need our help. With your donation, the Clarkston Community Center can help ease the burden that the families will have during this difficult time. We stand with our community and will always remain a safe place for anyone who comes through our doors.
