Our Greatest


All donations to the Center are greatly appreciated!  We’re updating this list regularly.

Right now the food pantry needs:  canned Soup (healthy, lower sodium versions; please no box soup), canned fruit (in its own juice or no sugar added), canned pasta, box cereal, Jiffy baking mixes, laundry detergent, and 3-5 lb. bags of dry dog and cat food — as well as gift cards from Lettuce Grow.

We also are grateful for merchant gift cards ($10-$15) for client needs such as:

  • Hardware stores
  • Restaurants
  • Groceries and Other Retail (Target, Walgreens, etc.)
  • Gasoline
  • Train/bus transit cards

Interested in hosting a donation drive? Contact Josh Kiser for more information. Please note we do not have the resources to pick up donations. We kindly ask that you make arrangements to drop off your donations.
