Lend a Hand

Without the support of our friends and neighbors in the community, we couldn’t do what we do. With your gift of time, money, food or clothing, we can continue to uplift those most at risk in our community.

We accept both cash and checks by mail or in person.

Please include a note if you are from one of our supporting congregations.
