Food Preparation

When serving food at a buffet, keep food hot with chafing dishes, slow cookers, and warming trays. Keep food cold by nesting dishes in bowls of ice or use small serving trays and replace them often.

Working in the Kitchen

Safe steps in food handling, cooking, and storage are essential to prevent food-borne illness  you can't see, smell or taste harmful bacteria that may cause illness. In every step of food preparation, follow the food safety steps.

Used Clothes

Clean, new and gently-used clothing for men and women of all types is helpful. Men large sizes are especially helpful. We are always in need of new underwear/t-shirts and socks, new and gently-used jeans and shoes, and professional clothing for those looking for work or re-entering the workforce. In the winter, we are especially in need of warm outerwear: coats, jackets, hats, gloves, and scarves.
