Fall Giving Opportunities

Used Coats Wanted

As the cool fall weather approaches, we are preparing for our annual coat distribution.  From now until October 21st, we will be collecting donations of new and used, good condition coats.  We are specifically looking for KIDS COATS.

Maybe you have an extra coat you no longer use?  Perhaps your children have outgrown theirs and you are looking for a place to “recycle” them?  If so, we will gladly receive them.

Donations of coats can be dropped off at our Food Warehouse, 311 North 6th Street or our Main Office, 423 North Street in downtown Steubenville.

Need a winter coat? Stop by our plaza location (240 South 7th) on October 21st, 22nd and 23rd and receive one free of charge!

Make someone’s holiday Sweet

For this year’s Thanksgiving distribution, we are stocking our shelves with lots of fresh and nutritious food to offer to our community.  But…we still know how important it is to have something sweet to enjoy around the dinner table.  This year we are asking our newsletter community to focus primarily on donating three items to our annual Thanksgiving distribution.

Cake mix

Frosting

Cans of Sweet potatoes

This year we need 1,400 of each item.  We invite you to challenge your church or organization to see how many items they can collect prior to our November food distribution.  All items can be dropped off at our Food Warehouse, located at 311 North 6th Street in downtown Steubenville. 

Christmas Love

Each year, through our Christmas programming, we assist over 1,400 families registered in our food program with toys and other meaningful gifts. Children ages 12 and under receive toys and gifts and teens 13-18 years of age receive a Christmas stocking.

As you plan your holiday shopping, we invite you to consider donating new or gently used toys or items such as  shampoo, conditioner, deodorant, toothpaste and toothbrushes, lotion, body wash, hair brush/combs, razors, shaving cream, mini-grooming kits, bubble baths, make-up/brushes, nail polish/manicure kits, jewelry, snacks & candy, gift cards, etc.  All items can be dropped off at 423 North Street from now until December. 

We won’t begin distributing toys until the second week of December, so there is lots of time to start collecting items.
