Food Pantry and Clothing Closet
We provide clothing and non-perishable food to community members who are in need due to financial distress from loss of income, loss of a home through natural disaster, or other circumstances. We also endeavor to help families who are meeting the needs of children who have been removed from their home as a protective measure.
The Food Pantry is stocked with donated non-perishable food items. Donated food or monetary gifts come from corporate grocer donations, government programs such as the USDA, local food drives, or personal gifts to the Pantry.
The Clothing Closet is filled with donated new or gently used clothing. Donated clothing is provided by individuals, donations by corporate retail organizations, or through monetary donations with which needed items are purchased.
Closet hours: Tuesdays, 9:00 am - 12:00 pm and 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm. Visits are by appointment only.
