Make sure you have a list of what you need or are looking for.  Pickups are scheduled within 15-minute increments. We have an easy pickup system.  We ask that you give us 2-3 days to pull you order together. Once we have your food, we will text you a picture of your food in the bin when it is ready for pick up.  You will need to let us know what time you can pick up.  Must be sometime during daylight hours.  *If you are unable to pick up you must let us know so that we can pull the food back in for the night.

Donate:  if you like to donate you can do so at any time during daylight hours.  YOU must contact us first! We will always take monetary donations.  Please no random drop offs as we are limited on space and like to control the number of items coming in. While we appreciate your generosity, please do not add extra things, such as used toys, open food, dirty beds.  These extra items will be put in the trash. If you are unsure, please contact us to discuss your donation.
