How Can I Support?

•   Volunteer your time...each month we have Food Distribution Days and we need volunteers to help sort, bag, and distribute the donated food.  We also need pantry volunteers to help collect, sort, and store donated food at the Sister Elaine Wicks park where the distribution takes place.  We also have four major Distributions events that require additional volunteers for Back to School, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and Easter.  We always need helping hands!

•   Financial Donations...your cash donations give our organization the purchasing power to supply heatlhy fresh vegetables, and fresh fruits for food distribution days. This money allows our volunteers to purchase fresh items to supplement the dry pantry goods distributed to those in need as close as a day or two away from their distribution so the food is at its freshest.  You can also donate gift cards for grocery and other stores to allow our ministry volunteers to purchase items needed in the Project Outreach pantry.

•  Donations of Food...we need to maintain a full-pantry on a monthly basis so we need items that have long shelf lives such as packaged dinners, soups, stews, canned meats, noodles/pastas, sauces, canned vegetables, canned fruits, dried beans, rice, boxed desserts, cereals, oatmeal, cooking oils, condiments, sugar-free and diebetic nutritionally friendly foods are very much appreciated also.  We also gladly accept donations of paper goods such as trash bags, paper plates, napkins, cups, utinsils, sandwich bags and storage bags.  You can delivery your donated foods to the following churches:

 St. Brigid Catholic Church 7801 Lowrance Road  Memphis, Tennessee 38125  (901) 758-0128

Germantown Presbyterian Church  2363 S Germantown Rd, Germantown, TN 38138  (901) 754-5195

Incarnation Catholic Church 360 Bray Station Rd, Collierville, TN 38017  (901) 853-7804

OLPH Catholic Church 8151 Poplar Ave, Germantown, TN 38138  (901) 754-1204

Donations of School Supplies...Each July we collect school supplies for 600 school students.  Your donations of school supplies goes along way to help these children start the school year prepared.  You can donate notebook paper, binders, pencils, pens, markers, crayons, pencil sharpeners, rulers, erasers, composition books, and folders etc.

Donations of Seasonal Clothing...will be accepted if the clothing is clean, in good condition, and in season (i.e. we do not accept winter coats in the summer months nor light weight clothing during the winter months).  We will also accept shoes, bags, and accessories  in excellent condition for infants through adults.


Meeting The Needs Where They Are...

  Addressing the need for diabetic nutritional support... We are now implementing a special program to address the nutritional needs of our Fayette County population that has been impacted by type 2 diabetes and low-quality nutrition.  We do this by supplying some sugar-free items and diabetic food alternative choices from our pantry and fresh vegetables from local gardens.

Addressing the need for better access to education...We are in need of donors for providing scholarships for college education opportunities to graduates of the Fayette-Ware High School.  Currently we have one perpetual scholarship that has been funded and we are currently seeking additional donors to expand our scholarship offerings to allow more students the opportunity for self-development through higher education. Providing this support will have positive & lasting economic impact on these students and their families for generations to come.

Addressing the need for better access to computers for education...We are also seeking donors and sponsors to provide new computers for college bound students who are served by our Project Outreach programs.
