Helpline has resumed taking paper bags. Delivery times are 9-11am, Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday (not Wednesday).
Helpline House appreciates the donations of paper grocery bags for packing the increased amount of food they have been giving out. Before bringing your bags or dropping off in the designated Helpline spot at the grocery store, please heed these few reminders that will save the staff and volunteers a lot of time and energy:
Empty bags of receipts
Recycle dirty and/or ripped bags
Double bag the bags (one inside the other)
At Helpline, drop off between 9-11:30am (food bank client drive-thru happens in the afternoons)
