Donate Food, Clothing, & Items

When you make a donation of food, clothing, or other essential items, neighbors and families gain access to much needed resources. In turn, this can also:

  • reduce anxiety from food and resource insecurity,
  • improve health and well-being,
  • and provide an increased sense of stability.

Scroll down for donation hours and location, or visit our donation portal if you’d like to make an online cash donation.
