We gratefully accept donations of food, money, recycling, volunteer time, furniture, household items, clean clothing, medical equipment and vehicles. All gifts are tax deductible.
You can make a difference!
Your donation of any amount helps us provide fresh produce and groceries to a senior in need. Grey Bears volunteers deliver shopping bags of healthy food to 4,500 seniors every week – including to the doorsteps of 1,100 homebound seniors. Many of those served have no other resource for healthy food. Thank you for being as generous as you can.
