Non-Food Collection Drives
Often overlooked when helping IFCS is a myriad of other items that aren’t commonly thought of. These items like personal care items, baby items and birthday supplies are real costs to families in need just like food. By collecting these items for Integrated Family Community Services, you will help make a BIG impact on our neighbors in need.
Have a “Shower Shower”
Have people collect all personal care items that you would use in your own bathroom: shampoo, conditioner, toothbrushes, toothpaste, soap, razors, tampons, lotion, etc.
For people who are struggling to feed their family, these luxuries are often too expensive.
Have a Paper Drive
Collect toilet paper, paper towels, napkins, diapers, etc. These items are always needed!
Socks And Underwear
We only give out new socks and underwear in our clothing bank and we never have enough.
We get bread in four times a week and lots of peanut butter, but what good is it to give out bread and peanut butter without the jelly? Joins others in your community by collecting Jelly and donating it to IFCS.
Fill a box with everything a parent would need for their child’s birthday. Cake pan, cake mix, frosting, party favors, napkins and a gift for the child. For parents worried about feeding their family they often think a birthday celebration is something they can’t afford.
