We are grateful for any assistance
Financial contributions are greatly appreciated. Our Center runs on a small budget and any and all gifts make a big impact. Our programs are able to buy supplies such as food and diapers at a discount and financial contributions also help cover these costs plus the cost of electric bills, trash pick-up, appliance repairs, and other hidden costs. Every little bit helps!
If you are interested in supporting the Jubilee Center’s work through a bequest, qualified charitable distribution, or gift of appreciated marketable securities, we would love to discuss this with you. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org
We serve 100+ plates of food each day and our supply needs are changing frequently during the pandemic. Currently our soup kitchen is in need of:
- 3 compartment to-go containers
- Sandwich baggies
- Individually-packaged snacks (chips, granola bars, pretzels, etc.)
- 8-ounce foam cups with lids
- Fluff and jelly (all set on peanut butter)
We do not accept general clothing donations: no pants, shirts, etc.
We have very limited storage space, no room to display donated items, and no way to wash donations. We are currently in need of the items below and tax receipts are available upon request.
Items we need: (used but clean is fine!)
Donating to the Free Clinic
The Free Clinic is currently closed due to the pandemic and will reopen when it is safe to do so
Patients of our Free Clinic are often homeless, sick, hungry, and unable to afford medication. Your contribution can help patients access what they need, such as Penicillin for an infected tooth ($13), an elastic bandage for a sprained ankle ($10), or heartburn, depression, or blood pressure pills ($4). We also like to keep many over-the-counter medicines on hand.
Thinking of holding a food drive?
We’ll be honest with you: we don’t have a huge need for mixed nonperishable foods. Sorting these donations takes a lot of time away from our usual meal prep and client appointment responsibilities (we estimate 1/3 of the canned goods we receive are expired, some of them by 10+ years!). When we have a lot of random options at our Food Pantry it makes the line move very slow.
Our Food Pantry receives cases of free canned goods from the USDA and it is much more efficient to distribute these since we can pre-pack bags and offer the same item to all of the 100+ families who come to the Food Pantry each week.
If and when we need other canned or frozen foods we can usually buy them very cheaply through Good Shepherd Food Bank.
We are so happy you’d like to help and would really appreciate the items on our wishlists above!
