Success Stories

2022 Accomplishments

PCUW is proud to say that we accomplished so much during 2022. We conducted many drives to help our community.

We held the following drives: school supplies. hygiene, food, and winter clothes.

School Supplies Drive

In the summer we held a school supply drive, and we collected over 14,000 items.

These items were divided and donated to different schools around our area. New High School, Achieve Academy, Canton Charter Academy, Canton Prep, and other schools, just to name a few.


Hygiene Drive

During our hygiene drive, we received over 800 items! Including: dental items, feminine hygiene, deodorant, body lotion, and more.

All these items were given to the Plymouth Canton Educational Park, also known as PCEP.


Food Drive

We received a little over 100 items for our food drive, courtesy of the Girl Scouts.


Hats for the Homeless

Our Hats for the Homeless drive, which ran from October through December, collected over 1,400 items. The items we received went right back into our local community, Plymouth Community Clothing Bank, Lake Point Church, Community Council on Aging, and more!

Make a Difference Day 2022

We also held our annual Make a Difference Day in 2022.  Make a Difference Day is an annual event held once a year in November. We have volunteers go around in the Plymouth and Canton area and rake leaves for lower income people and or seniors who need help. We had over 100 volunteers and 30 homes completed despite the cold and windy weather. The morning of the event we held a continental breakfast at the First United Methodist Church on North Territorial in Plymouth.  They have generously allowed us to use their facility for the past few years to host this event.  We could not do this without them.  Staff there helped us setup and even donated and made the coffee for us.   Many local restaurants and stores donated food to our cause.



Special thanks go out to the Bakehouse46, Einstein’s Bagel locations in Plymouth, Busch’s Market, and Absopure Water Co. for supplying a very delicious breakfast. Following the breakfast, the volunteers picked up lawn bags which were previously donated by Home Depot and Ace Hardware stores. We still had an abundant supply of them. Volunteers came back to check in after they were finished and shared so many wonderful stories.  Homeowners were so appreciative, and several had made homemade cookies and little gifts to pass out to the volunteers.



Also volunteers seeing the need did extra homes for neighbors of the recipients.  A couple of groups ended up short handed and other volunteer groups pitched a hand.  All in all, it was a wonderful day that blessed the community and the volunteers. We are so grateful for everyone who participated in Make a Difference Day, and we are excited to continue the event this year.
