Noticing a stockpile of canned foods? Keep seeing an old jacket that doesn’t fit anymore?
While these can take up space in your cabinets and closets, for our neighbors experiencing homelessness, they can mean survival. Your generous donation of goods provides hope for those who need it most – the hope that others care about them.
Small gifts can make a big difference.
