Contribute

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!

Donating Supplies

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: 

  • Individually-packaged snacks (popcorn, pretzels, chips, Cheezits, etc.) ** This is our biggest need, people really appreciate receiving these with their hot lunches!
  • 3 compartment to-go containers (new only)
  • Bleach
  • Fluff and jelly (all set on peanut butter) 
  • Salad dressing
  • Baked beans

Donations from our Amazon and Walmart wishlists ship directly to the Center!!

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.

Donating to the Free Clinic

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.

Donate to the free clinic

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 80-100 families who come to the Food Pantry each week.
