We strive to make a personal connection with each shopper, letting them know that they are cared for and that they are important to us.

How You Can Help

It’s very easy to make a big impact at TLPTC. Each and every week, we rely on volunteers and donors to help us run smoothly. Below are a few ways you can help our Pantry.

  1. Volunteer! Each week, we need volunteers to stock the shelves, pick up food, and help our shoppers select their groceries. We also rely on volunteers to strengthen our community and interact with our shoppers while they are waiting to shop. To learn more about volunteering, click here.
  2. Donate Food to the Pantry. If you aren't able to volunteer there are several ways to get involved. Every donation of food is vital to us. We accept donations of food from private and community donations. Shelf-stable items are best, but we also accept fresh donations that can be used within a week.
  3. Host a canned food drive. Hosting a food drive is not a difficult task—in fact, it’s pretty easy. Collect canned items and non-perishables at work, church or in your neighborhood. Let us know if you need additional flyers to spread the word about TLPTC or if you would like to talk to us about specific ways to help.
  4. Financial support. We rely on your donations to stock our pantry each week!  Most weeks, we don't have enough to support everyone in need. We rely on financial donations to help us fill our shelves and provide for our families.  To donate, click here.
  5. Spread the word! Help us get the word out about TLPTC—share our information with family and friends who may also be interested in becoming a partner with us.
