If you'd like to donate but don't know how, gift cards are always appreciated. Gas and food cards are the highest priority. Any denomination is acceptable. Also, cards from stores like Target and Walmart, which sell groceries and other household items, are always in need. Families cannot purchase such things as paper goods, toiletries, and personal hygiene items with their Link card (food stamps) so gift cards can be a big help. Other gift certificates that are welcome are for haircuts, auto repair, oil changes, and department stores or Master Card gift cards. These can help with work boots, over the counter medical needs, uniforms, etc. We greatly appreciate your generosity!
