Supplies We Need Now

One great way you can help us serve homeless and hungry men, women and children is through donating much-needed in-kind items for use in our ministry centers. Below you will find a list of items we always need, plus an updated list of food needs. With serving 450+ meals a day, we definitely appreciate food donations!

Donations of clothing, paper products and other ongoing needs may be dropped off at our ENCORE Thrift Stores during business hours (Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.). Food donations may be dropped off at our Bethel Mission facility at 1310 6th Avenue.

We also appreciate when groups help us by coordinating donation drives for needed items. If you would like to organize a donation drive, please contact us first so we can provide helpful information.
