Each year the number of people in need of food and simple things to make life bearable.  Please take note of some of the things that are needed.

  • Spices. Seasoned salt, cayenne pepper, chili powder, cumin, cinnamon, nutmeg, oregano, basil and thyme.
  • Toiletries. Toilet paper, tooth paste, soap, deodorant and shampoo all make life a little easier for someone without a home. 
  • Feminine products. Pads, tampons, panty liners all help make life more manageable for a woman living on the street. 
  • Baby wipes. 
  • Canned meats and jerky. Homeless people without a place to cook have a difficult time getting enough protein. Canned tuna or meat and jerky are portable and ready to eat.
  • Crackers and tortillas. Soup packets.  Canned fruit. 
  • Can openers. Canned goods are the staple items distributed by SOVA and other food banks, but people rarely think of donating can openers. Unless a can has pop top, a homeless person has a real challenge making use of the food.
