Food Pantry and In-Kind Gifts

We also accept in-kind donations, which allow you give tangible items rather than cash donations that benefit the clients we serve. We accept in-kind donations to support several areas:

  • Food Pantry 
  • Silent auctions 
  • Support a client for the holidays: Individuals, corporations, churches, and civic groups can adopt a Damien Center client or family during the holiday season, providing gifts that will help make a happier holiday.
