                                                     Donating Items


  Our donation barn was donated and built by one of our local church Partners.  It keeps your donated items safe and dry.  Large items can be set next to the Barn.  Anything that could be damaged by weather can be dropped off during Office hours.


Food Bank

  We are in need of personal hygiene items, toilet paper, laundry & dish soap, boxed meals, cereals, diapers, any canned goods and healthy snacks.  Non perishable items can be dropped off any time.  Refrigerated or frozen donations are accepted during office hours.
Clothing bank


  Have clothes that you no longer wear?  Shoes that just are not hip enough?  Are you just killing your work out and need a smaller size?  Give those items new life by passing them on to some one who could use them.  We accept all types of clothing, clean clothing without stains or rips are appreciated.                             There is always a need for men’s clothing from t-shirts to suits. Seasonal items are all also very welcomed.


Scrap metal and Cardboard wanted!


  Old broken and unused items made of metal can be given new life.   Everything from toasters to aluminum siding, or wire hangers and tin cans can be recycled.  We even accept trailers, motorcycles and vehicles.  Basically anything made of metal.  You may drop off scrap metal items any time.  Small items can go in the large bins in front of the red pole barn. Larger items can be placed on the left (North) side of the red pole barn.
  Whether from your home or business, cardboard can be recycled. Cardboard may be placed in the door marked Cardboard.   It is on the right side of the red pole barn.  All proceeds from recycling go towards serving the community.
