Lending a helping hand
Northville Civic Concern
Northville Civic Concern is an all-volunteer organization whose purpose is to help those in need with food, yet it also collects and distributes household supplies, clothing and other necessities. 

The food is distributed on the second and fourth Friday of the month, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., at the offices at 42951 Seven Mile Road.  Civic Concern services approximately 100 families in the city of Northville and Northville Township, as well as Focus Hope recipients.

Civic Concern is funded primarily by the contributions of Northville community residents. In addition to monetary contributions, Civic Concern accepts donations of canned goods, cereal, paper products, soap and cleaning items, and baby products. These items can be dropped off at their location or at City Hall (lobby box marked for Civic Concern). The organization is a 501c nonprofit, which makes donations tax deductible to the fullest extent of the law.
Monetary contributions can be mailed to Northville Civic Concern, P.O. Box 323, or delivered to 42951 Seven Mile Road, Northville, MI, 48167.  For additional information, please call 248-344-1033 or visit their website


Lion's Club
The Northville Chapter of the Lion's Club meets every second and fourth Monday of the month in the Cady Inn at the Mill Race Village, located on Griswold Ave. in the City of Northville.  Presently, there are approximately 20 members who work to help those with sight and hearing disabilities. 

The Lions Club is most visible each April when they conduct their "White Cane" drive.  At that time, members are seen at busy intersections soliciting contributions for their cause. 

In addition to this activity, the Lion's Club sponsors the Leader Dog School in Rochester, MI, purchases glasses for children of poor families, and assists in testing newborns for hearing and sight deficiencies.

Northville Kiwanis
Kiwanis was created for men and women who feel they must live for more than themselves alone. It is an outlet for service that enriches the lives of its members and brings the realization that existence can never be worthwhile until it is shared with others through acts of service.

Kiwanis LogoThe primary purpose of the Kiwanis Club of Northville is to improve the quality of life for children and families worldwide by adhering to the Objects of Kiwanis International, which are:
  • To give primacy to the human and spiritual, rather than to the material values of life.
  • To encourage the daily living of the Golden Rule in all human relationships.
  • To promote the adoption and application of higher social, business, and professional standards.
  • To develop, by precept and example, a more intelligent, aggressive, and serviceable citizenship.
  • To provide, through this club, a practical means to form enduring friendships, to render altruistic service, and to build a better community.
  • To cooperate in creating and maintaining that sound public opinion and high idealism which make possible the increase of righteousness, justice, patriotism, and goodwill.
Join Us
If you are interested in serving the Northville community, and having fun at the same time, then please consider learning more about the Kiwanis Club of Northville and joining us. The word “Kiwanis” comes from the native tongue, and means “we have fun” or “we make noise.” Kiwanis members have fun, form enduring friendships, render altruistic service, and build better communities. We do this at our Wednesday luncheon meetings, during committee meetings, and volunteering for many other activities. Find a local chapter here
