Food Drives and Gifts In-Kind

We provide elders in need with food of our food pantry and we rely on food drives to gather nonperishable items on our shopping list.

Donations of office supplies such as art supplies, stamps, games and birthday cards, gift bags, and other items help keep our overhead low, although limited storage space keeps our “wish list” short!
