Please Support our Community Crisis Fund & Help Us Help Our Food Pantries
Rising prices are putting a strain on our local food pantries. Please help us help them. Through its Community Crisis Fund, the Foundation provides gift cards that the pantries can distribute as needed. These cards enable clients to purchase items that the pantries might not have, such as fresh foods, baby products, and toiletries.
To donate, use the button below to open our PayPal donation page and select Community Crisis Fund on the drop-down menu.

We beg your pardon as we revise our website...
Last year, we moved our website to a new platform and revised its design and content. However, we are not quite finished. Our Board is updating policies and our host platform is fine-tuning its functionality. So, you will see a few areas here and there that are still "under construction." Please check back with us often as we complete those areas and add others.
