In Kind Donations


Photo of groceries

Donations of food items are always needed at local food banks. This is Grocery Cartespecially true in the current economic climate as well as after a disaster such as a flood or severe storm. To find your local Food Bank, see the Washington State Food Pantries List, or call 2-1-1, for assistance and information.




Why cash donations? In-kind donations such as clothing, household supplies, etc. can quicklySupplies become a burden for local emergency managers and disaster relief agencies. This is due to the additional resources and cost associated with accepting, sorting and distributing the donations to citizens or organizations impacted by the disaster.
