School Supplies: Each summer registered families with children may request a basic bag of school supplies. Staff members coordinate with local schools to obtain lists and match the needed items to each child. We work with area individuals and businesses to generate donations of school supplies and financial support in order to provide our families with as many basic school supplies (and backpacks when available) as possible. Families may stop in from July through September to pick up the school supplies.

Holiday Food Baskets: Project Concern offers a limited number of wonderful food baskets for our families complete with all the trimmings for Thanksgiving and Easter.

Families with the most children and overall persons in their household are offered the baskets until the supply is exhausted.

Birthday Gifts (children 17 and under): Registered families may request a birthday bag for any of their children ages 17 and under. We start with a nice gift bag and include things like cake mix, frosting, napkins and plates. The bag also includes a small age-appropriate gift to help ensure that the children can enjoy a nice birthday.

Christmas Gifts (children 17 and younger): Beginning each October, patrons complete a “wish list” for each of their registered children. Project Concern staff and volunteers coordinate the program. This includes collecting the “wish lists” and finding sponsors to purchase the items the children would like for Christmas. As the items are dropped off by the caring sponsors, the team sorts and labels everything into gift bags. The week before Christmas we have our families come to the pantry to pick up the gifts for their children. If you would like to become a gift sponsor, please complete the form below.
