Along with our Noisy Collections the last Sunday of each month we will collect food and other non-perishable items. Our donations can benefit the food pantry or the organization itself.
As we continue with our FOTN ministry for this year, we are going to focus a little more on specific needs that have been identified. We would like to rotate the items we are collecting monthly for donation, in the hope of increasing the volume of those items.
We are asking for just personal item donations, such as toothbrushes, toothpaste, deodorant, bars of soap. Socks are always a welcome donation, as well.
We will have a sign in the back to assist you. As always, any donation is always appreciated and gratefully accepted.
Please note space is very limited at Friends of the Night and their focus on clothing donations is limited to specific times. Please help Friends of the Night People continue the vital work they perform for our community. For more information see at: www.friendsofnightpeople.org
We are so pleased to work with Friends of the Night People so we continue to assist in the vital work and support of our community.
