Food Drive

Food Drive

Help "Pack the Pantry" with food items. We can provide the collection barrels for a non-perishable food drive. We also accept donations of perishable items, like baked goods, cheese, produce, and more!

Sock Drive

Socks and Underwear

We can always use donations of new underclothes for women, children, and men! Everything from socks and underwear to thermal underwear and men's undershirts. Do a Sock Hop or an Undie Drive today!

Pillow Drive

New Pillows

Every year, the Mission provides shelter to about 2,000 women, children, and men. That's a lot of wear and tear on our pillows. Consider a Pillow Fight to collect new pillows for the shelter!

Hygiene Items

Hygiene Items

In addition to a place to stay, we provide our guests what they need to keep clean: shaving cream, razors, toothpaste, etc. Everything you use, we can use. So do a Personal Needs Shower for those in need!
