You can drop off items at HomeCooked from 10a.m-6p.m. Wednesday and Thursday.

Every Donation is important, welcome,  and sincerely appreciated. No donation is too small.

We are collecting donations of:

  • Non-perishable dry food items that can be eaten right out of the box or can or package (many people are living in shelters or in homes with no cooking or and no refrigeration facilities). There's also a need for instant coffee.

  • Diapers (all sizes are in especially short supply and high demand)

  • Baby wipes and adult wipes/moist towelettes (for those in shelters or in damaged houses baths and showers are still hard to find)

  • Baby formula (that does not require refrigeration for storing)

  • Sanitary Products

  • Men's underwear (all sizes in new packages)

  • Socks

  • Batteries

  • Small Toys (many kids are facing spending the holidays in shelters or away from the homes they are used to) please no bikes, big games or boxed toys. Space is limited for many families so this should be something the can fit in a pocket, purse or backpack.

  • Other basic necessities (items that might be helpful to families who suddenly found themselves without a home).

  • NEW blankets and pillows

  • Several people have inquired but for this collection drive we are not taking household furniture items.

One item that is going overlooked is first aid equipment. I've heard that they're running low on antibiotic ointment and band-aids for volunteers.
