Special Drives

Throughout the year, the Center runs special drives for food clothing and other needs, including:

PROM DRIVE - MARCH & APRIL
We collect gently used prom dresses, formal wear for men, jewelry, accessories and shoes, so local high schoolers can realize their dream of attending their prom. We collect these items from early spring through May. Here is a link to our flyer.

“The Center allowed me to feel special the day of my prom, by helping me find a fabulous dress I would not have been able to afford.”

MOMS FOR MOMS - MAY
During the two weeks leading up to Mother's Day, the last four years, we have run a diaper and wipe drive to help support the local families in our community who come to us for help. We collect over 2,000 pounds of diapers and wipes during this drive!

SCHOOL SUPPLIES - JUNE & JULY
In the spring, we collect new supplies and books to fill children's backpacks in the fall. This year, because of the current crisis, we are asking for financial contributions only to allow us to fill 2,000 bags (twice as many as last year) to distribute this August.

HOLIDAY FOOD DRIVE  - OCTOBER & NOVEMBER
Starting in October, we collect special holiday foods to distribute for the November and December holidays.

SHARE THE WARMTH DRIVE - NOVEMBER & DECEMBER
We collect new warm sleepwear, robes and slippers for children and youth (infant through age 18). We give out this new sleepwear for the winter holidays, and welcome volunteer help.  We welcome your donations any time the Center is open, beginning November 1st.
