How Can You Help - Donating

Donations of money or food are always welcomed and needed. Providing more than 3100 individuals a month with generous amounts of assorted foods based solely on donations requires community support to consistently meet the challenge. We are grateful for those who donate on a monthly, quarterly or annual basis and invite everyone to join us in this mission to feed the hungry in our area.

(Because there is a monthly fee along with a "per transaction fee" charged for EVERY donation made on line, we ask that you mail your donations to us at P. O. Box 671, Murphysboro, IL 62966 so that your donation is not reduced by administrative fees.)

How Can You Help - Volunteering

We are always in need of volunteers to help staff the many areas of work necessary to keep our charity working effectively. Volunteer opportunities include computer/office work, client assist positions, warehouse work, box packers, van drivers, janitorial work, website maintenance and fundraising skills. Volunteers may work as little as a few hours a month to multiple days each week, depending on their preferences and availability.  (Please refer to Forms tab for Volunteer Form.)
