Give Help

Caring Hands helps neighbors with support from neighbors! Here is how you can help.

Your cash donations enable Caring Hands to purchase food from economical sources that are not available to the retail consumer.  Donate securely through PayPal or mail donations to:

 

Caring Hands Outreach Center

PO Box 103

Altoona, IA 50009

Donations of nonperishable foods, personal items (diapers, feminine hygiene products, soap, toothbrushes, etc.) and fresh produce from your garden may be dropped off at Caring Hands Altoona Monday-Friday, 9 am - 1 pm

 

Food items may also be placed in specially-marked barrels at Hy-Vee and Fareway stores in Altoona and Pleasant Hill.

Donate your antiques, décor, furniture, and home goods for resale and all of Caring Hands' ministries benefit. Proceeds from sales go toward the work and mission of Caring Hands. To donate or learn more, visit Secondhand Treasures' online store here.

During the Covid-19 outbreak, Caring Hands is temporarily suspending its Clothes Hanger program.  This will allow volunteers and satff to focus on keeping the food pantry operating safely.  Please direct your clothing donations elsewhere until further notice.  Thank you!

Caring Hands offers many opportunities to serve the community.  Over 200 volunteers pick up donations, organize inventory, evaluate collections and estates, and assist clients in the Pantry and Clothes Hanger.  If you feel called to give your time, there is a place for you!

 

To volunteer, fill out the volunteer application and submit it to caringhandsfp@gmail.com or drop it off at a Caring Hands location. 

You can support the ministry of Caring Hands considerably by praying for our clients, staff, and volunteers.

Contact us to learn more about donating your time, money, or items.
