Not every person can volunteer for a charitable cause, but that doesn’t mean they cannot be involved in serving their community.  Organized food or clothing drives are great ways to pull people together and serve those in need.   The Life Center donation areas is a bee-hive of activity all day long as individuals and groups are delivering in-kind contributions to help their neighbors.

Here are just a few items that can be donated:

Staple items for food baskets:
Peanut butter
Cereal

Tuna

Rice
Pasta & tomato sauce
Flour/pancake/muffin mixes

For homeless baskets:

Love your neighbor as yourself.
