We are encouraging most in-kind donations be delivered to our Merriam Park Community Center — there are barrels outside for drop off. This encourages greater social distancing practices. If you have a larger donation and want to coordinate dropping off at the food shelf directly, please contact us so we can schedule your drop off off. Click below for our locations and hours.
If you are dropping of donations of fresh garden produce, please deliver that directly to one of our food shelves so that we can get it out to participants as quickly as possible.
Host a Donation Drive
Businesses, faith communities, schools and organizations enjoy showing their commitment to Keystone by hosting donation drives to benefit our programs. For tips on how your organization can host a food, personal care or used bike collection drive, check out our volunteer page. All donations can be dropped off at Keystone.
Looking for support or know someone who is?
We know for so many people in our community, things in their lives may not feel as stable as they once did. If you or someone you know needs support please know our programs are here for you and we encourage you to refer people to us as well. We can get people connected to food shelf services, meals on wheels, crisis assistance, or refer to other community services as we are able.
Looking for additional food support?
In July we’ll also be hosting Foodmobile distributions, Free Farmers Market events and a Fare for All event, all in safe, socially-distanced ways. Check out our events page for the full schedule and check back regularly as more events are added.
