  How You Can Help


We warmly invite all faith communities to aid us in fulfilling our mission!

  It is only through your charitable donations of goods, services and direct financial contributions that we are able to offer assistance to families in need.  Your generosity is tremendously appreciated by us and by those we serve.  Out of every dollar we receive, 95 cents goes directly to those in need, and only five cents provides for administrative overhead.  Thank you for your continued support! 


Your generosity goes a long way:

  • $10 – Meat for a family of four

  • $50 - Groceries for a family of four for one week

  • $200 - An average utility bill for one family

  • $1,500 - Keeps a family safe by paying rent, utilities and groceries for one month
