We Couldn’t Do This Without Them
On behalf of all those who have had hope for the future restored, thank you!
Product Donation Partners
Thanks to corporate partners who donate product we are able to serve more families in need and work towards self-sufficiency. All Community Food & Outreach Center programs work together through a holistic food model. Partners who donate food and other products necessary to run our Cost Share Grocery program help make it possible for us to offer the Crisis Relief Center, Emergency Food Box Program or LIFE Educational opportunities. A truck load of donated product does much more than fill stomachs, it changes lives.
