We need your help to care for our neighbors and friends in need. We maintain a food pantry and a clothing closet to assist with the needs of our homeless friends, needy neighbors and missionaries. Your donations will directly benefit many of the Underground ministries that are working with the poor. Donations can be dropped off at the HUB.

canned chicken 
canned fruit 
canned hams 
(small) canned vegetables 
pop-top canned food like Chef Boyardee 
coffee & tea

small snacks like pudding cups and granola bars 
bags (paper or plastic) 

For the homeless:

flashlights and batteries 
men’s short-sleeved T-shirts 
white socks 
new underwear 
mosquito repellent 
travel-size personal care items (shampoo, toothpaste, etc.)

“Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’”
