Over the week ending with the 4 September distribution, we received approximately 2.36 tons of non-perishable food, and gave out some 2.82 tons of non-perishable food and perhaps as much perishable food to 290 families.

We also need: Similac Blue and Similac Orange baby formula, and/or domestic or foreign equivalents/substitutes, diapers size 4, baby wipes, and Pediasure. In addition we need Ensure, and adult pull-ups sizes medium, and large.
Paper grocery bags (Wegmans or Trader Joe size), plastic newspaper bags and plastic grocery bags are always needed.
