Please help our neighbors in need with your donation of cash, food or personal care items. The COVID-19 pandemic has placed considerable strains on our ability to respond to all those who suddenly found themselves unable to feed their families or themselves. Only because of the incredible way in which so many of our supporters stepped up to meet this unprecedented demand were we able to cope. 



Cash Donations

If you are able to do so,  a monetary donation is perhaps the best way to help us continue our work. The funds we raise allow us to replenish our shelves quickly with the most-needed items. We purchase much of our food from the Connecticut Food Bank, which offers perishable and non-perishable food at a greatly reduced cost.  By clicking the link below you can donate via PayPal or using your credit/debit card.






If you would prefer to send us a check, you can find our address on the Contact page.  All gifts can be made in memory of or in honor of someone you feel would value and appreciate our work.

Don't forget to check if your employer has a matching gift program!

We also gratefully accept supermarket gift cards.



Donations of food are vital to the work we do and bring much-needed variety to our shelves. We accept donations at the Pantry at the times shown in the accompanying picture. If you would like to make a large food donation and the listed times are not convenient, please contact us.
