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.”  — L.F.

MOMS FOR MOMS - MAY
During the two weeks leading up to Mother's Day, we 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 late spring, we begin to collect new school supplies and books to fill children's backpacks in the fall. Due to space constraints, we ask donors to deliver bags filled with suggested school supplies to the Center by the end of July for distribution in August.

HOLIDAY FOOD DRIVE  - OCTOBER & NOVEMBER
In October and November we collect special holiday foods to distribute to our families for the Thanksgiving holiday.

SHARE THE WARMTH DRIVE - NOVEMBER & DECEMBER
We are asking for donations of prepackaged new socks, hats, gloves and blankets for children and youth (infant through age 18). We distribute these to local children throughout December. We gratefully begin accepting donations beginning November 1st. Please see the Share the Warmth page for specifics on the program and learn how to pledge to fill bags for the Center.
