Back to School 2020

Do you remember your first day back to school and seeing your friends after a long summer break?  Students were decked out in new shoes, clothes and confidence to start the new school year. We want to provide for every student in needs this year.

Won’t you help by filling out the donation form below? 

We will be giving away new shoes, socks and underwear July 20-23 at the Grace United Methodist Church. Please visit our events page to get all the information needed to participate in this event.

Looking for a current needs list?

We are now taking donations at the main campus ONLY.  We will make sure that the women’s shelters get the donations directed to them but need to limit the traffic at those locations.  When you are dropping off donations, please ring the doorbell by the front door (door is locked) and a staff member will meet you.  We will be updating our current needs list weekly.  If you have any questions please contact us! THANK YOU!!!

We are screening all that are in the mission, quarantining all that have symptoms and we are following recommended sanitation and CDC prevention; therefore,

The Howard County Board of Health approves that we continue to offer:

Grab and Go meals are available seven days a week in our parking lot

12:00 pm – 12:30 pm and 4:30 pm – 5:00 pm

Grocery Bag Assistance, every Wednesday

10:00 am – 11:00 am and 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm

(Photo ID required, one bag per household per week)
