The Carpenter’s Shelter accepts in-kind donations to help meet a variety of needs of our clients such as personal hygiene items like deodorant and toothpaste, over the counter medication, twin size sheets and non-perishable food donations. With Thanksgiving around the corner, we receive a majority of our food donations in the month of November and December. Because of the generosity of the community, the food we receive during this time can keep our pantry stocked throughout the year! Because of this, we will only be accepting donations for our food pantry in the months of November and December. There are some food items that we will accept year around, as we use those to provide breakfast to our residents five days a week or give our children snack when they return from school. The items we’ll be accepting year around are:
- Coffee and Tea
- 100% Fruit Juice Boxes
- Cereal and Granola Bars
If you have any questions about these changes, please feel free to contact our Volunteer Coordinator, Liz Salter (firstname.lastname@example.org).
