Donations

Monetary and food donations are ALWAYS WELCOME!

Long-term relationships with government agencies allow us to maximize the purchasing power of each donated dollar used for obtaining food. As the quality and variety of donated foods fluctuate each year, monetary gifts provide us with the flexibility to provide the optimal nutritional mix of foods.

If you'd rather donate a tangible good, consider these most-requested pantry items:

  • peanut butter
  • canned tuna or chicken
  • toothpaste
  • shampoo
  • deodorant
  • diapers of all sizes
  • baby wipes
  • can openers
