Ways that you or your organization can help...

You can drop off both nonperishable AND perishable items at our location 4275 Culver Road on Tuesdays and Saturdays from 9am to 11am. (see top 10 list on our website or at the bottom of this letter)

You can donate through Amazon. Whenever you make a purchase through Amazon go through www.smile.amazon.com and then type in Irondequoit Community Cupboard; we get a small percentage of your order cost.

Host a food drive

Make a monetary donation either in person or by mail- checks made out to ICC c/o Debbie Evans PO Box 17834 Rochester, NY 14617 or thru our paypal site (see our website at www.irondequoitcommunitycupboard.org )

Workplace Giving- launch a workplace giving campaign at your company to support us just like ESL did this past month! (Thanks Anne) Anne started a food drive at her work with items we needed off of our Top 10 list. This is easy to do. It can be items from our Top 10 list or it can be one item per month, we are grateful for it all!

Share our needs with your church or social group. Every year the Irondequoit Rotary provides us with 100 baskets for our Christmas Program. It doesn’t have to be this big, it can be anything. Maybe you collect gently used coats or new hats and gloves. Perhaps healthy snacks for our backpack program. Etc.

Ask guests to bring a food or toiletry item to your next party

Honor someone you love by giving a gift to us in their name or in their memory

Talk to your workplace about a dollar match for hunger in our community.

Put a money jar for collection at your local business or place of work.

Donate gift cards from one of our many local stores. For Thanksgiving we give seniors and 1 or 2 person households a $5 gift card towards a turkey.

Follow us on Facebook and share our page with friends

Fill stockings with small personal hygiene items and some treats for our seniors and adults with disabilities for the holidays.

Get the kids involved; take your child to the store and have them choose a favorite snack for one of our kids.

Host a gently used coat drive.

Collect new hats and warm gloves for us to give to our clients.

Put together themed bags like hot cocoa and popcorn and a movie or a cookie mix, frosting and cookie cutters for Christmas decorating.

"Adopt A Food Item" - would you or your business like to adopt a food item for our Backpack Program or a shelf item?
