DONATIONS: Thank you to all who donate so generously. The total donations for the third quarter were 5114 pounds (this included canned goods and produce). If you do not need a receipt, there is a plastic container under the canopy where canned goods can be left. Please only leave donations during open hours on Wednesdays. The high-priority items are those that are on the shopping list used by our clients. You can find a list of high-priority items by visiting the Donate page on our website (or click here to view the list).
