Want to help? Here's our wish list
What are our needs? Non-perishable food and canned goods always top the list. When in doubt, cash lets us buy in bulk items needed at the moment.
AT THE GROCERY STORE? Throw a few extras into the cart for those in need. Here are some suggestions:
Personal hygiene items such as shampoo, soap, deodorant, toothpaste, toothbrushes, feminine hygiene products, combs, razors,
Canned items such as vegetables, beans, soups, pasta sauce, tuna, stew, chili.
Box meals such as hamburger or tuna helpers, mac 'n cheese, stuffing, pasta or rice sides.
