Donate to the Milk Money Drive

Shelf-stable milk is a crucial part of our weekend Snack Packs. We include a rotating menu of nutritious food items, and a white and a chocolate milk are included with each Snack Pack each week. Shelf-stable milk accounts for at least 1/3 of our Snack Pack budget, but we believe our kids in need benefit from this nutrition when they are away from the stability of school meals and milk.

Shop for Amazon Wish List Items

Certain items are always in demand in our donation center, and it's great when these items are in stock without our staff or volunteers using precious time on shopping: sweats and joggers, socks and shoes, coats, underwear, t-shirts and hoodies, school supplies and more. Shop our list and the items will ship directly to us! This is a great way to contribute without making a trip to the store.
