Food Donations
We cook our meals fresh each day in a commercial kitchen. We are always willing to discuss ways you or your company can donate food supplies to us, as those types of donations help us keep our meal cost as low as possible. Do you have a catering business that ends up with large amounts of leftovers after events? Or perhaps a bakery with product at the end of the day? We also can accept large amounts of fresh produce, frozen meat, and other items provided they meet the Board of Health criteria for food we can accept and that it is not expired.
 
Office Supplies
We have a small staff, but we do a lot of big work! We are always in need of general office supplies like copier paper, ink pens, mailing labels (contact us or Thiemann's Office Products for the kind we use), highlighters, staples, etc. You may wish to call before you donate these items to make sure what kinds we use.
 
Prizes & Gift Basketcs
We normally do several events and fundraisers each year and are always looking for prizes from our local community. If you would like to donate a prize, a gift certificate, or perhaps a gift basket to be used as as prize at one of our events, please be in touch.
