Donate Funds

We’ll use every nickel for good.

When we are running low on essential items, we use your donations to ensure we can best meet our clients’ needs. Funds also greatly support our Emergency Assistance Program. We are proud to be able to help people stay in their homes and to help keep their homes warm, especially in the cold season.

Your tax-deductible gift will help us keep our doors open, especially now when so many more people are coming to us. Please consider making a financial contribution today.
