Most Needed

Below is a list of most needed items. 

However, please note that due to COVID-19 our need is greatest in the areas of both:

financial support and food. 

 

As we have been unable to do grocery store food drives, we rely on people like you, to donate.

Your financial donations are especially helpful because they allow us to see where the gaps are and make bulk purchases as well as pay expenses related to running a food bank:

  • maintenance of building, refrigeration, delivery vehicles, and food banking equipment

  • costs of transportation (fuel), heat, hydro, staffing, sanitation products and communications to the most vulnerable in our community.

Thank you for your support!
