Understand the Need
We focus on finding and helping families in need through a well-defined process focused on privacy and sensitivity while also customizing the support to the needs of that particular family.
We provide your family or group a shopping list tailored to the family you will be supporting. It will include items that they need, (including: sizes, preferred colors, styles, etc.).
This is a great way to get your family or group involved during the season of giving.

Food Drives & Fundraising
Local High School, Junior High School, and Elementary Schools conduct food drives to support the program. Each school focuses on collecting a specific items that are needed. Once those items are collected, we can conduct an inventory to determine what items are still needed. At the same time, we are hosting fundraising activities to raise money to purchase additional food items, toiletries, clothing, and other supplies that the family may need in coming months.

Consult by Phone
Every family participates in an interview process in order to verify qualifications for participation, identify each member of the family, document individual needs of each family member, and schedule an estimated delivery time.
Food and Household Needs
Our goal is to provide each family with 2-3 month’s worth of food, primarily staple items that can be used in a variety of ways and serve the family for multiple meals. In addition, we also provide common household items such as laundry detergent, cleaning supplies, personal hygiene items, and paper products.
