While it’s easy to get caught up in a hectic, overly scheduled life, volunteering can actually make you feel like you have more time! According to Feeding America, there was a surprising finding by the Harvard Business Review that stated giving your time to a community cause actually makes you feel like you have more of it. We feel that volunteering enables you to give back to others while nurturing your soul. Volunteering is also a great way to spend time with your family, neighbors or community organization.
Donate Food or Fundraise
What we need the most throughout the year is non-perishable food. Cans and boxes of food will help feed a family for weeks, and our inventory is always fluctuating.
We try to provide a wide variety of food items to augment your donations such as gluten free products, produce, meat and dairy.
If you are unable to donate non-perishable food, we often need to purchase hygiene and household products that aren’t donated. Your monetary donation will support the purchases we need to make, as well as the normal costs of operations (office supplies, shelving, etc.) The Pantry is a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation, so your contribution is fully tax deductible. All contributions will be acknowledged. Donations can be made in honor of a special occasion or in memory of someone.
