Simply Give Campaign, hosted by Meijer, a SCCS pantry partner

Purchase a $10 donation card and Meijer will match the donation!
These funds are converted to gift cards for fresh meat and other foods that are not available from Loaves & Fishes or private
donations and allow South County to provide more options for Food Pantry clients. Cards are available at SCCS or Meijer, Shaver Rd. .
Double Match Days = Sept. 3rd - 5th, Meijer will donate $20.00 for every $10.00 donation card sold!
In 2014, SCCS received over $9,000 in gift card donations that allowed us to serve more than 700 people ever 1/4 of the year!

Big changes at South County Community Services
We have moved to a different building that is more accessible and conducive to our mission. SCCS and the DHS satellite have also relocated to: 105 S Kalamazoo Street, Vicksburg, MI. The new location is a part of the Main Street Properties site at the southeast corner of Kalamazoo and Prairie streets. It is located next to Subway and parking is available on the East side of the building. You may get directions by selecting the Find Us/Location tabs then click the hyper-link, located under the map.
The new location will afford SCCS clients better access and easier parking. In addition, operational costs will be reduced significantly. The SCCS board believes the move will increase the agency's ability to serve more clients and create new programs.
Speaking for the SCCS Board, President Lorna Landrum states "We have a long history with this beautiful historic building, but we are excited about the benefits of a barrier free building that is so much more cost effective to manage. Plus the new location will only enhance our partnerships in the community as we move forward."
For those in our community who rely on the Village Community Center for their meetings and other programs, the Village of Vicksburg (owners of the building) have taken responsibility over the day-to-day operations for the foreseeable future. The building schedule is not expected to change and rooms will be available for rental by calling 269-649-1919. We will keep you posted to any other changes on Facebook and our website http://www.southcountycs.us/ .
