Holiday Program

Each year our food pantry reaches out to the community for assistance, in providing food and holiday gifts to residents of Leyden Township in need.  Last year, we assisted over 370 households (1,046 individuals) in our community.  

We need your support for this effort to succeed.  We depend upon contributions from the community to finance this program.  If you would like to contribute to this charitable cause, you can do so in a variety of ways.  We are   accepting donations of unexpired, non-perishable food items, personal items, toiletries, new clothing, new (unwrapped) toys and monetary donations.   

Your generosity is greatly appreciated and will directly benefit those families who are most in need, right here in our community.  We have provided a list of our most needed items below.
