Saline Area Social Service appreciates the growing support of the Saline community.  With the help of donations, we were able to provide over $150,000 in food and paper product donations to the families we serve last year.

We accept all types of non-perishable food donations.  Donations can be dropped off at our office at 224 W. Michigan Ave., Saline, MI 48176.
