Food Drives

Food Drives

We invite you to collect food or other necessities for the House! Holding a food drive at your workplace, church, or as fun activity for scout troops is an easy way to make a huge difference in the lives of our families. With 80 families using our free pantry, we go through an enormous amount of food here at the House. We love your donations any time of year and maintain an active wishlist on as well as have a wishlist of canned and dry goods we can always use. We’ve also prepared some Adobe PDF Iconhandy sheets listing our food needs that you can print and take with you to hand out at your chosen donation site, like outside of a grocery store or in the break room at your workplace.

We know that family comes first and that our residents don’t always have a time to pack a bag before they get here. We offer things like shampoo, toothbrushes, other toiletries and supplies to families who arrive here by Medivac or in a rush because of extreme medical emergency.  We invite you to collect toiletry items listed on our wishlist for families in need.

If you are interested in organizing a food or necessities drive, please contact Kaarin at  who can help you get started, arrange drop off of goods, and give you a banner to promote your drive.
