Greetings! We are collecting items to support the most vulnerable in our community. Check out the information below! Thanks in advance for donating.

When: Nov 1st thru Dec 24th
For who:  Benefiting Carmichael Homeless Families with School-Age Children

Suggested Food items:

  • Canned meats: Think beyond tuna & soup, which food banks get tons of. Instead go for canned beef, canned ham, canned chicken, canned salmon. Or hearty ready-to-go meals like beef stew and chili with meat.
  • Canned vegetables: Everyone donates green beans. Instead, give potatoes, carrots, spinach, peas or any other veggies your family likes.
    Canned fruit: Not pineapple. This is the most commonly donated fruit. Any other fruit, particularly those in fruit juice without the extra sugar, would be great. Dried fruit works too (raisins, etc.)
  • Low-sugar cereal like plain Cheerios
  • Peanut butter, Instant Soups, Instant Mac & Cheese
    Cans of beans, Pasta, pasta sauce
  • Cans, cartons or boxes of powered and evaporated milk
  • Snack items for kids to take to school: juice boxes, applesauce containers, granola bars
  • Juice Boxes, Capri Suns, Bottled Water
  • Granola Bars, Raisins, Cookies, Breakfast Bars
