Feed the Need in Wexford County

In 2011, Kettunen Center staff members started the Feed the Need Program and with help from all our guests, we donated over 500 items to Cadillac Area OASIS/Family Resource Center. Kettunen Center is continuing the program in 2012. Please remember to bring one non-perishable item to the center the next time you visit in 2012.
