  • canned chicken

  • canned pinto beans

  • canned kidney beans

  • canned mixed vegetables

  • canned green beans

  • chunky size soups (beef or chicken )

  • jelly (grape or strawberry) 

  • 1 lb. packages of white rice

  • canned evaporated milk

  • sugar packets

  • tea bags

  • cookies or other dessert items

  • powdered laundry detergent or pods

  • shampoo

  • toothpaste

  • deodorant

  • hygiene kits (can include sample size toothpaste, soap, shampoo, deodorant, hand sanitizer, wipes, etc)

  • cloth bags 

 

Drop off donations between 9am and noon any Wednesday and leave outside the door. Volunteers check regularly! DEAM is located on the lower level of Holy Trinity Episcopal Church (515 E. Ponce de Leon Ave.) off Sycamore Place.
