FOLDING CHAIRS IN GOOD CONDITION: We are trying to help a local veterans group find folding chairs in good condition.
QUART-SIZED ZIPLOC BAGS: Family Service Agency uses, and is in need of, Quart-Sized Ziploc Bags for many purposes throughout the year and it is the one size Ziploc bags we struggle to get enough of on a regular basis.
PAPER TOWELS: Our agency is completely out of paper towels. Aside from using them here in the office, we also give them out to clients in their cleaning packages. Paper products are one of the many things people are not able to purchase with food stamps and we have many elderly and disabled clients that struggle to purchase paper products like toilet paper and paper towels, as well as cleaning supplies and hygiene items.
USED BACKPACKS: With the school year now over please consider donating backpacks (in good condition) to Family Service Agency. We use them to pack food in for our homeless clients.
ADULT INCONTINENCE SUPPLIES: We are in dire need of Large and Extra Large sizes of Adult Pull-up type incontinence briefs (diapers without tapes). We appreciate all sizes that are donated but have specific needs for Large and Extra Large. We have several clients right now that due to stroke and Parkinson’s disease cannot use the tape type diapers that we currently have.
PERSONAL HYGEINE ITEMS: We have a single-dad who is raising three teenage daughters. They are in need of feminine hygiene supplies (Tampons and Sanitary Pads).
SMALL INK CARTRIDGES: Family Service Agency recycles the small ink cartridges that you use in personal printers so please drop them off at the agency. (Sorry we cannot use the toner type cartridges.)
CELL PHONES: Family Service Agency recycles cell phones. If you have some please drop them by the agency don’t throw them out as they are worth money for the agency.
ALUMINUM DRINK CANS & DRINK CAN TABS: We are collecting aluminum drink cans to be recycled. Please do not throw away those cans; just drop them off at our agency and we will recycle them to help pay utility bills, rent, mortgages, buy fresh fruits, meats and cheese. We also send the drink tabs to Ronald McDonald House so parents have a place to stay while visiting a sick child in the hospital.
COUPONS: Many of us get coupons in the newspaper and magazines and don’t use that coupon but we have many people who come in and go through our basket of coupons and get what they need to help stretch their food budgets. Please drop off your unwanted manufacturer coupons to our office.
