Donation drive

Our Pantry distributes food to nearly 600 people each week and depends on donations from the community to help us do that.  Please consider organizing a food drive in your neighborhood, school, or place of business. Our Food Drive Coordinator would be happy to provide a list of current food needs.  If you wish to organize a Food Drive for the Pantry, please email our Food Drive Coordinator who will be more than happy to guide and assist your efforts.

Other donations

The food pantry and clothing closet can only continue to operate with your generous donations.
