Peace Pantry

Get to the root of issues and you can help people bloom. By contributing household essentials to our Peace Pantry, you are helping remove barriers our residents face daily. Our pantry works to support our neighbors in getting out of crisis mode and into cultivation mode.

Be the Change

In-kind donations make a big difference. By providing laundry detergent, soap, and deodorant, we help kids go to school with confidence. Diapers allow parents to focus on the next step they need to take to move their family forward. Small purchases make a huge impact on our families. 

If you have other new or gently used items that are not on the list but you think we may be able to use, please contact us. Thank you for considering a tax-deductible in-kind donation to support our work!
