There are several ways you can donate to the Corpus Christi Food Pantry and Assistance. We welcome donations of goods, such as groceries, bus passes, gift cards, or even your own time as a volunteer! Of course we welcome cash donations as well. For your convenience we offer several ways to donate financially to the Corpus Christi Food Pantry and Assistance.

Multiply your donation through your employer:
By participating in your employer’s matching contribution program, you are able to leverage your donation! Many area employers have matching contribution programs. If your employer does not have such a program, matching programs of this type are easy to get started! Check with your employer to see if they offer this great service.
Donate Goods to the Food Pantry:
We need the basics: non-perishable food, toiletries, and cleaning supplies. If you would like to see an up-to-date list of goods we need please visit our home page.
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 education classes might enjoy working on providing such gifts.
Donate items 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 interacting with clients, while others are “behind the scenes”…
- Greet our clients and help make them comfortable and guide them through the process
- Stock the shopping shelves
- Help with Brown Bag collections or pick up local donated goods at various parishes and other locations
- Fill grocery bags for a client using their shopping lists
- Serve on a special committee to support the Board.
- Many other ways to help!
