Thank You For Helping Our Vulnerable Youth Whether They:

  • are dealing with hunger and lack of resources due to poverty
  • have fallen so far behind with their learning they need one on one, face to face help to catch up
  • are trying to understand their feelings of anxiety, sadness in being over-whelmed in navigating their young lives by themselves.

Every donation helps one or more vulnerable students each day.

Just $30 can provide hope for our vulnerable youth!

YOUR concern is HOPE for ALL of our 2300 Petoskey and Harbor Springs school students but especially for the ones who are eligible in receiving Free Lunch or Reduced Cost Lunch program.

Approximately 765 Petoskey and Harbor Springs middle and high school teenagers out of 2175 students are eligible for free or reduced-cost lunches, as determined by family income. As many as 1 out of 3 teens (33%) in our two communities are dealing daily with hunger, according to (source).

NDYP is partnering with Parkside Deli, Therapy Solutions, and Monarch Workforce to bring healthy lunches to these most vulnerable children.  Fletch’s GMC Buick Audi of Petoskey, MI, is also a supporting sponsor.

The Northmen Den Youth Pantries, Inc. (DBA Northmen Den Youth Services) in July 2021 applied to the IRS to be a not-for-profit charity. In the meantime, Emmanuel Episcopal Church is still our fiduciary charity agent to accept donations for our most vulnerable students dealing with hunger.​
