During this ongoing crisis, Women Giving Back has expanded its operations and begun operating a drive-thru food distribution every Saturday morning- we have served 786 households with 15,720 lbs of food to date! In order to continue these operations, we are relying on donations from the community, both monetary and in-kind. Monetary donations can be made here: https://womengivingback. org/donate/

Snack packs are an option - a guide is attached if needed.. If you choose to make snack packs, please keep in mind that the packs are meant to provide 2 days worth of meals, and therefore should have 2 of each item (2 lunches, 2 dinners, 2 breakfasts, 2 snacks, 2 drinks).

We are also collecting donations of non-perishable food items, diapers, wipes, toiletries, formula, paper towels, etc. to get to families in need as schools in the area shut down. Anyone who wishes to donate such items can do so through our Amazon wish list, or can drop off in the bin behind our warehouse. At the moment, we are most in need of diaper wipes, all sizes of diapers, formula, baby food, and individually wrapped or small containers of snacks, juice, or milk. One additional way to help is to make activity packs for children that we can pass out with the food. Examples of items to include in these packs are below:
  • Coloring/Activity books
  • Crafts
  • Crayons/Colored pencils
  • Games
  • Stickers
  • Books
Donations can be mailed to our address, or dropped off in person. If you choose to donate any items in person, we have a contact-less dropoff behind our warehouse in the bin. Tuesdays and Thursdays are the best days to dropoff, but you can come anytime, as the bin is outside 24/7. Please don't hesitate to reach out with any questions, or if you would like any receipts from us.
Thank you and stay safe!
