Donate Supplies

Make a tangible impact on our program

There are many meaningful ways to make donations to Open Arms. If the kitchen is the heart of what we do, it is supported by many other organs, which rely on a steady supply of such things as paper, garden gloves and coffee to keep them going! Supply donations help ensure our funding can go directly to our programs–providing nutrition and technical assistance to people who are ill.

You can help by making a donation or organizing a donation drive with your place of worship, office, school, club or sports team. Donation drives for herbal ginger tea or non-GMO veggie seeds are a great way to come together as a group and help make a difference.

To make a donation or start a drive, contact Jennifer Bliss at 612-872-1152.
