Thank you for your interest in donating.

We extend our heartfelt thanks to those who have made our success possible through contributions of time, goods, or money. Without your generosity, we would not be able to help those who require assistance in our community.

We rely on your support. Our funding comes from individuals, businesses, local organizations, and state and federal agencies. The current economic climate has created an urgent situation of reduced funding, a sharp drop in donations, and a significant rise in the number of families who are turning to us for assistance. Without your generous support, we could not reliably provide food for our community. Please consider making a financial donation today.

(At the bottom of this page, we have listed our current food & non-food essential item needs.)

Amazon Wish Lists

Helping Hands “Wish Lists” are NOW AVAILABLE! With an ever-changing list of needs, knowing what’s needed can be a challenge. To support our programs, we’ve created “Wish Lists” of most-needed items. Items on these lists support our participants and organization, and purchasing items on this list is a great way to take action against hunger.

Tax receipts are available upon request.
