Want to Donate?

Donations can be brought to the Veteran Market during regular business hours.  There is an after-hours bin, next to the pantry warehouse, where non-perishable foods can be donated in the evenings or weekends. We are no longer able to take donations of used furniture or clothing due to our limited storage capacity.
