Food & In-Kind Giving
Much of the food we share comes from donations from individuals and groups in our community. Throughout the year, we rely on others to bring food staples, holiday basics and even personal care items that are given to our clients.
Circle Of Concern’s largest expenses are fresh/perishable foods and short-term financial assistance for our clients. In fact, 86 cents of every dollar we receive directly supports our clients through the pantry and other programs. Your financial gifts make it possible for us to meet these critical needs.
Time is a precious gift. Volunteers sharing their time and their talents are integral to Circle’s work. With a small full-time staff, we rely heavily on volunteers to accomplish our mission, especially working directly with our clients to share groceries from the food pantry and run our programs.
