Frequently Asked Question FAQ
How do we get people who may need this service?
They are recommended to us by social workers, case workers or come from established locations like Dimock Health Center and Victory Housing. We also take word of mouth!
How do people sign up?
Send us an email tell us who the family or person is, why they are in need (lost job, fire, homeless), do they have children in the home, if so, how many? name, age, address and contact information (so we can set up delivery)
How often do you do this?
We are not set up with any concrete schedule. we are at the whims of the donations we receive. We conduct these programs as donations come in and as soon as we have collected enough money to buy a good amount of food ($160-$200) we immediately distribute!!
