We need your help.

It is not often we get down on our knees and plead – but today we are doing just that. The CDC and local health officials have just released new guidance and expectations for homeless shelters during the COVID-19 Pandemic. In our emergency shelter we have 38 vulnerable citizens living in shared quarters. Following expert recommendation, we are now mandating our guests “shelter in place” to help stop the spread of COVID-19, because of this we are in immediate need of the following items:

  • Microwavable meals
  • Cereal (preferably small boxes)
  • Peanut butter (small jars or “to go” options)
  • Lunch meat
  • Fresh fruit (apples and oranges)
  • Canned soup
  • Fruit cups/pudding
  • Bottled water
  • Drinks (pop, juice pouches, etc.)
  • Grocery Store gift cards
  • Cleaning and disinfecting products

If you have a connection to a school, hotel, or any business that may have access to bulk food and may be willing to donate, please respond to this e-mail or call 330-453-7644.
