Item Donations

How to Donate

We accept food donations Monday through Thursday 10 am to 2 pm, and clothing donations Monday through Thursday from 8 am to 10 am at 311 W Grant Line Rd. You can drive through the north gates and make donations in the driveway behind our building. If the back door is closed, ring the doorbell and a volunteer will assist you.

You can get a tax-deductible receipt for your donation. We do not assess the monetary value of your in-kind donation but instead show the quantity or weight you donated.

Please do not leave any donations if we are not open.

Donations go directly to families and individuals in need throughout our community.

Without the generous donations of our individual and corporate supporters, we could not exist. Donations can take many forms. Some suggestions are listed below. We are a qualified 501(c)(3) charity and your donations are tax deductible.
