What kinds of food are needed?

Any non-perishable food is appreciated; however, food banks prefer foods high in protein. Those include peanut butter, tuna fish and dry beans. They always need soups and stews, macaroni and cheese, hot cereals, oatmeal, canned fruit and vegetables and baby formula with iron.

Food banks also need toiletry items such as diapers, shampoo, condition, soap, toothpaste and toothbrushes.

What kinds of clothing and household goods are accepted?

ARC Thrift stores accepts all clothing. Household items, including books, toys, sports equipment home electronics, linens or collectibles are also accepted. The sale of donated goods funds ARC’s mission programs which serve people with mental and physical disabilities. In return, ARC Thrift stores provide clothing vouchers for area clothing banks to allow those in need to shop at ARC Thrift stores.
