Join us for the KampOut for KAIR 24 hour food drive!








About KampOut for KAIR

Kampout for KAIR is a 24-hour food drive to help those in need in Kalkaska County, Michigan. The Kalkaska Area Interfaith Resource Council (KAIR) provides emergency food assistance and protection against electric and utility shut off.

During the event, tents and RVs will be set up in front of the Bill Marsh Auto dealership in Kalkaska to collect as many non-perishable food and personal hygiene items as possible. The hope is to fill the truck to overflowing!

Family Fare and Northland Foods in Kalkaska will stay open for the entire 24-hour period of the campaign.Those stores, along with Save-A-Lot of Kalkaska, will set up displays of food items that are a top priority for KAIR. These items include cereal, peanut butter, fruit, macaroni & cheese, powdered or canned milk, canned tuna or other meats, spaghetti sauce, pork & beans and egg noodles.

Contact Mike Kent of Bill Marsh at (231) 932-6220 or Catherine Somes of KAIR at (231) 258-0060 with questions.


Join us from October 7th at 5pm until October 8th at 5pm.

Please bring all of the items you would like to donate to KampOut for KAIR during this 24 Hour Food Drive.
