Why Zingerman's Loves SOS

As longtime community partners of this great organization, we've been able to witness the tremendous impact they have on our community. With their multifaceted approach, they're truly tackling some of the toughest issues facing people in our area. We believe everyone deserves access to a safe home and nutritious food, and it's inspiring to see SOS go above and beyond that call. Their range of programming and resources have helped thousands of individuals, children, youth, and families in and around Washtenaw County for decades. Their services have continued throughout the pandemic and have been more crucial than ever as so many are facing food scarcity and a terrifying housing crisis. We are incredibly honored to put a spotlight on their excellent mission and continue our partnership.
