As it's done over the course of the past two decades, the Sterling Heights Community Relations Department will initiate and draft a master list of families needing assistance wherein interested service organizations will work together to adopt as many families listed as possible. However, as our community continues to feel the effects of Covid-19, resources will be limited.
"Each year, families and non-profits struggle to serve as many deserving families as they can with their limited resources, and that is why I am so proud the City is again taking the lead on coordinating holiday assistance efforts this year," said Community Relations Director Melanie Davis. "Sterling Heights has initiated this service sharing effort for decades, and it is more important than ever to deliver volunteer aid services in the most efficient manner possible."

Those needing assistance, and those who are not presently on a holiday aid list, can request that their information be placed onto the City's master list. Individuals seeking assistance for the upcoming holiday season can apply by visiting the City's website: www.sterling-heights.net and completing the registration form. Incomplete forms will not be accepted. To qualify, families must reside in Sterling Heights, meet federal low-income standards as stated on the form, and have not received assistance from the program more than three years in a row. Proof of Sterling Heights residency with a picture I.D. will be required at the time of pick-up. Residents will not be able to register in person or via phone. The registration period will run from Oct. 19 through Nov. 6, 2020.
The City's Holiday Assistance Program, coordinated by the City's Community Relations Department, provided gifts, food and clothing to more than 400 families in 2019. Dozens of businesses, schools, churches, City employees and individual residents participated in the program last year, providing individual sponsorship of families and program gift card donations.
