How You Can Help

 

You can organize a food drive. Ask your family, neighbors, church, or civic group to donate nonperishable and shelf-stable food items.

 

Suggested items for donation include

— canned goods like spaghetti, tuna, salmon, beef stew, corned beef hash, beans, soups, vegetables and fruit

— boxes of pasta, macaroni and cheese, crackers, cereal, oatmeal, and pancake mix

— jars of peanut butter and jelly

— juice, coffee, tea, hot cocoa mix, instant breakfasts

— shelf-stable milk – either dry or evaporated

— condiments like spreads, ketchup, mustard, relish, barbecue sauce, pickles and syrup

You can help by donating your gently used items. Clothing, household goods, and appliances are always needed at the center.

 

You can also organize a clothing drive. Ask your family, neighbors, church, or civic group to donate their no-longer needed gently used clothing, household goods, or appliances.

 

Some donation suggestions

Unfortunately, not all items should be donated – store personnel cannot clean, mend, or repair items, and merchandise not fit for sale must be discarded at Catholic Charities expense.

 

Clothes should be in good condition and ready to wear. Please wash or dry-clean items before donating them.

 

Think about the essentials for setting up a household. Families need dishes, pots, pans, blankets, sheets, and towels.
