shep47The needs are many. Every day there are things we do that require stuff. All kinds of stuff. Doing laundry, brushing our teeth, feeding our families, and the like necessitate consumables like detergent, toothpaste, food, and more.

Our families have the very same needs.

This is a unique opportunity for you to come along side of us to help supply the people of our community the very things that might generally be taken for granted. Yet, these are precious and necessary items for our families.

Perhaps this particular need moves you to action. If this interests you, please review the items that we are in need of, and help us in the way you see fit.

We will promise you that care is taken to distribute these items in a very judicious way, insuring that we are able to help as many as possible. Often, we must break down things like a bottle of laundry detergent into smaller water bottles to distribute and meet the needs of so many that we serve.
