 Here we are again!
The new school year... Fall is right around the corner and a new school year is upon us. The fall presents new challenges:
  • School Supplies We are in need of school supplies. We would like to express our deepest gratitude to all that donated for our client’s children this year. Because of your generosity and support our pantry children will have supplies to start off their new school year! Thank you! Donations can still be dropped off at the pantry during our hours of operation (Tuesdays & Thursdays 9:30 to 11:30 AM) or call and we will have a volunteer available to receive them). See our How You Can Help - School Supplies page.
  • Thanksgiving We are accepting donations now of items needed to go along with the turkeys to be distributed for Thanksgiving. We greatly appreciate all donations received.
  • Christmas - Food and gifts for our little angels
  • Coat Drive - Donations of warm coats for the winter months.
Food Supplies are low! - With the children returning to school, the drains on our food supplies are high and our volunteers are busy with the returning to school, preparation for the new building and the oncoming holidays - we are always on the lookout for more and better food supplies to support our communities. All donations, big or small are truly appreciated, every little bit helps. We cannot do it without you. See our How You Can Help page.
