Donate Food and Supplies
Our community has a tremendous network of cooperative ministries and other non-profit organizations that distribute food, clothing, and critical resources to people in immediate need. We are relying heavily on their existing infrastructure and support networks to provide basic needs to families in crisis.
The demand for their services is growing exponentially as the pandemic lingers. We need everyone’s help to keep their shelves full of the key resources they need to care for our community through COVID-19. Items can be dropped off at a local food pantry nearest you where food donations will be received, logged, sorted, boxed and shared with partnering non-profit organizations as needed.
