How do I make a donation of food?
You can bring food by any day the food bank or the resource center is open. We will weigh your donation and give you a receipt. More information on what can be donated can be found here.
How about a donation of children’s items?
We would love to receive your gently used and clean children’s clothing, toys and books for our families. We appreciate (and so do our families) the opportunity for families to choose items from our bins for their children. They can be brought by during open resource center hours.
