Donation Drive

 

 

 

 

Donations of non-perishable food items are greatly needed!

 

Due to the increased demand for food services on Mondays and Fridays we are asking for all donations to be made on:

 

Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from 9:00am – 1:00pm.

Please pull up to the front of the pantry driveway for assistance in unloading.

 

 

The needs we are seeing are unprecedented, and have increased dramatically – mostly from families and individuals who have never had to seek help before. Our food assistance programs have seen an increase of 600% since the Shelter-in-Place took effect. We are now serving 500-700 families daily, Monday through Friday. We anticipate these increases to last through the fall, perhaps even into next year.

 

 

Support from our friends and local community have always been the backbone of our agency, and now that support is needed more than ever.

 

 

Besides food security, St. Joseph’s Family Center is also engaged in the local, and county-wide, emergency response to help prevent homelessness and distribute financial assistance to low-income families affected by COVID-19. We have pledged that the monies we receive will be pass through, and that we will not take any funds for administration, overhead or personnel. We feel strongly this is the right thing to do, as we truly are in this together.

“So many times you feel helpless on what to do to help others, volunteering and donating to SJFC makes me feel less helpless and that I am making a difference in someone else’s life.”~ Cindy
