Prefer to participate on your own time? We’re always looking for food and supplies to aid our outreach, housing, and hunger relief teams. There are a range of kits needed, from move-in and hygiene supplies for families transitioning out of homelessness to meal packs for the food-insecure.
We always appreciate donations of canned meats and single-serve snacks. We suggest you include a note of encouragement for someone who is struggling to make your contribution even more meaningful.
