IN-KIND DONATIONS

Supporting neighbors during the COVID-19 crisis.

M - F | 9 am - noon

Drive up, no contact drop off.

Grocery Bags Needed in the Food Bank.

Thanks in advance for preparing:

• clean grocery brown bags,

• with or without paper handles (sometimes they just tear off, that's ok), 

• double bagging (for extra strength when used), then

• folding-in the bottoms, 

• stacking them flat if you got a bunch,

• and dropping them off at Safeway's or Town & Country's donation bins next time you shop.  Alternatively, drop off at the food bank's curbside during donation hours. 

   Thanks for thinking of Helpline House!
