Clothing, Household Items & Furniture
What we freely receive in donations, we freely give to those in need.
If you have limited financial resources and need a small emergency supply of diapers, baby food, baby clothing, or furniture, come to Community Ministries and we may be able to help depending on what donations we have recently received.
Dog or Cat Food
If you have limited financial resources and need a small emergency supply of cat or dog food, come to Community Ministries and we may be able to help. When we receive donations of cat or dog food, we sort it out into smaller rations of about two cups each so that we may share the pet food with as many families or individuals in need as possible.
