Donate Goods to the Food Pantry
We need the basics: non-perishable food, toiletries, and cleaning supplies.
Many of our clients cannot afford birthday gifts for their children and this is an area where we can help. Age appropriate children’s gifts are always needed, especially gifts for older children. Schools or religious eduction classes might enjoy working on providing such gifts.
Donate to the Assistance Program
Beyond financial support for housing and/or utilities, support for job hunting, employment and other basic needs are always a welcome donation. Specific examples include:
• Local bus passes
• Car repair gift certificates from Hanson’s Automotive
• Shoe gift certificates from Alec’s Shoes
• Gift certificates from local stores (i.e. Walmart, Target, Kohls, etc.)
Donate Your Time!
Corpus Christi can not operate without volunteers. While we have over 80 volunteers, and always in need of people to help in various ways. Volunteering at CCFP&A does not require a long term commitment. And the range of ways to volunteer are numerous and varied! Here are only a few examples… some involve directly interating with clients, while others are “behind the scenes”…
• Greet our clients and help make them comfortable and guide them through the process
• Pack groceries in stock room
• Prepare “care” packages for our clients
• Pick up local donated goods at various parishes and other locations
• Serve on a special committee to support the Board.
• Many other ways to help!
