During the hot and rainy summer months, more people come to our centers for help. That means more food, shelter, clothing, and programs. During the summer months your financial gifts will be doubled. We can't do all that we do without the support of our friends in the community.
Our Centers will provide over 200,000 meals this Fall. Our Annual "Pack the Pantry" Food Drive helps us serve the homeless and needy of our communities. What a great way for you, your school, business, or place of worship to provide meals and so much more. Help, so that no one is hungry.
