April 1 - April 31

Many of our clients have been hard hit by isolation, lost income and difficulty in securing basic items because of the COVID-19 pandemic. The shortages have lingered longer and the increased costs for cleaning supplies and food items have created a new level of need among those we serve. 

To fill this need we are hosting an Essential Supplies Drive-thru during the month of April. We will be collecting toilet paper, paper towels, cleaning supplies and non perishable food items for clients and will be utilizing the drive-thru model to allow for social distancing.

We will have HOW marked Vehicles/ Donation Areas at all participating sites from 10AM to 2PM.

We are accepting the following items:

  • Unopened packaged and non-perishable foods (please check the "best by" date)

  • Cleaning supplies

    • Paper Towels

    • Cleaning sprays

    • All-purpose cleaner

    • Disinfectant wipes

    • Lysol spray

    • Floor cleaner

    • Bleach

    • Toilet bowl cleaner

    • Laundry soap

    • Dish soap​

  • Laundry detergent

  • Toilet paper
