Each week we have the opportunity to help 10-20 families with some of the necessities of life. We have an incredible partnership with Catholic charities to provide for some of these needs. However, there are many items that this resource is not able to provide. Below is a list of many of the items that we need replenished on a weekly basis. The items with the ** are items that are always in the greatest demand.
Please note that SNAP benefits do not cover the cost of toiletries, paper products, toilet paper or personal items. As a result these items are always needed.
