There are Many Ways to Give
Many of the Center's programs benefit from generous in-kind donations each year. We accept donations of:
Men's, Women's, and Children's Clothing
The Clothing program provides families and individuals with seasonally appropriate clothing, year round. We welcome lightly worn, clean or new clothing for the whole family, and every size. In addition, the Attire 4 Hire clothing program is in need of men's business attire, undergarments, dress shoes etc. (Any woman's business attire is sent to our partners at Suited to Succeed).
The Franciscan Center also offers hygiene products for men and women, including combs, brushes, toothpaste, toothbrushes, feminine products, lotion, soap, shampoo, hair conditioner, shaving cream, and razors. Both regular and travel-sized items are appreciated.
The Food Pantry helps households with limited income provide adequate nourishment for family members. We provide qualified households with three meals for three days. Donations of canned vegetables, canned meats and fish, pasta, packaged food and sundries are always needed.
