Connect with us on social media if you haven’t already! You can keep up on current needs, volunteer opportunities, program reminders, and upcoming events. We are also getting into the habit of sharing things simply to put a smile on your face. Do you have a photo of your pet or something funny you would be willing to share with our followers? Below are a couple examples of how we would use them. Send us your photos and put a smile on someone’s face!

Our goal: 1K in a day

Giving Tuesday celebrates 5 years on November 29th. Your donation to The Friendship Center on this day will help us feed your neighbors in the coming year.
Follow us on social media to get updates on 11/29!

Hotel Toiletries
If you or someone you know travels please save those travel sized toiletries and donate them! Better yet, set up a collection at your office, school, church, etc. These items go quickly and are always in high demand.
