We provide non-perishable food, lightly used clothing, personal care items, and small household items. We are also available to listen and attend to emotional needs in a safe environment.

Community Care Fund

We are extremely fortunate to have such an amazing community that supports us. A special thanks to those who in various ways make the Care Closet possible by regularly stocking our shelves with a variety of food items and carefully inspecting all donated items that come for distribution. Their efforts over many years are greatly appreciated and without their assistance we could not operate so smoothly.
