Ways that you or your organization can help...

You can drop off nonperishable food items at our one of our area drop offs; Ridge Culver Fire Dept, Irondequoit Library and Pinegrove Senior Center.

You can drop off both nonperishable AND perishable items at our location 2841 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 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 )

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

Purchase and fill a stocking for a senior citizen, adult with disabilities, or a single parent. We can even provide the stocking if you would like.

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?


Ideas for helping at the holiday season:

adopt a family (for Thanksgiving or Christmas)
sponsor a food drive
sponsor a used coat drive
sponsor a hat and glove drive (new only)
purchase stocking stuffers

Let your imagination go. Think of items that YOU would like to receive at the holidays. Think of things that many of us take for granted.

If you or your organization is interested in donating food baskets or donating food for the upcoming holidays these are the items to include:

sm. bag of fresh potatoes or 1 box mashed potatoes
1 box of stuffing
2 cans of green vegetable (you can include items for green bean casserole)
1 frozen pie
2 cans of corn
1 lg. can of yams or sweet potatoes
cranberry sauce
1 box of biscuit or rolls mix

1 reg pineapple
2 green vegetables
2 corn
1 scalloped potatoes
1 cookie mix
1 frosting

1 box of cereal
1 pancake mix
1 pasta
1 spaghetti sauce (non-breakable jar please)
1 peanut butter
1 jelly
1 package of rolls
A few pieces of chocolate or candy canes
*Distribution dates TBD

Often we know of seniors or adults with disabilities who will spend the holidays alone, or a single parent with no other family in town and we like to make sure they have something to smile about on Christmas morning as well. We like to provide them with a stocking. If you would like to build a stocking, here are some ideas:
socks (with foot grippers)
Gloves (esp needed are adult large)
Candy or cookies
Small hygiene products; shampoo, soap, LOTION, DEODORANT, shaving cream
hot cocoa packets
tea tins
large print puzzles
Lip balm
Nail polish
Cute things from the Dollar Store
let your imagination go wild, but please nothing religious as many celebrate many different ways or not at all.

All Stockings and Special Santa Items MUST be to us by Saturday December 10th before 1100am.

Extra items you can add to holiday baskets:
Coffee, tea and hot cocoa
Pancake mix and syrup
