A History of Service :

Throughout its history, In His Service Circle has been dedicated to serving the Midland community.

Responding to the needs, the Circle started a service which became the Visiting Nurse Association. The Circle was also the initiator of today’s Family and Children’s Services of Midland.

Currently the Circle’s service projects include:

  • Thrift Shop:

A community Thrift Shop has provided the opportunity for people to purchase good used clothing and household items at reasonable prices. Today the Shop is located in the lower level of the King’s Daughters Home and does a booming business.

  • Community Christmas Closet:

Through the years, the Circle has provided food, toys, and clothing for children at Christmas time. Today, the Community Christmas Closet provides a complete set of clothing for over 1,700 children who live or attend school in Midland County.

  • School Closet:

The School Closet provides a limited number of gift certificates for clothing to local school principals and/or guidance counselors to distribute for emergency situations throughout the school year.

  • King’s Daughters Home:

In 1947, the Circle responded to the need for care for the elderly by starting the King’s Daughters Home at the corner of Jerome and Larkin Streets. Today the Home on Rodd Street is licensed as both a Home for the Aged and a Nursing Home. It provides a gracious home setting and continuous care for 59 residents.

  • C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital:

Michigan King’s Daughters make a variety of items for patients at Mott Children’s Hospital in Ann Arbor. Items include toys, blankets, quilts, and other things as requested.
Fourth Thursday – 1:00 pm

  • Literacy and Autism:

The International Order of King’s Daughters and Sons recently adopted two new projects: Autism and Literacy.

The Circle is currently working with local groups to determine how we can develop partnerships that will support and enhance what they are doing, such as providing a speaker on autism for the medical and educational professionals and providing reading books for a summer enrichment program.

Members of In His Service Circle carry on this heritage and tradition of service to the community.

There are many opportunities to work on local and International projects.
