Donate to our Wish List

The families we serve are always in need of the following items.  If you can help, please drop off the item between 8:30 a.m. and 4 p.m. Monday to Thursday, 8:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Friday, and 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. on Saturday.  If you have a large amount of donated items, give us a call and we will arrange for a volunteer driver to pick-up:

Healthy Food – for many of our families the Caldwell food bank provides up to 80% of their diet, so we want to make sure that 100% of the food we give is healthy. 

Baby Needs – We are always short of size 5 & 6 diapers, disposable training pants like ‘Pull-Ups’, and wipes (we receive a good supply of diapers size 0 to 4). Sorry we can’t accept car seats or cribs – thank you.

Clothing – we always need good, used (or new) clothing for men, women and children; especially warm clothing for winter, including waterproof mittens and winter boots.  There is also a need for household items, such as dishes, pot and pans, cutlery, sheets and towels for new families moving into the area.
