Baby and Senior Care Essentials Drive

Food pantries like Village Family stay busy even in the best of economic times; the coronavirus pandemic has prompted a spike in demand for diapers, wipes, baby food, formula, adult diapers, cleaning supplies, and feminine hygiene products. These necessities get to be an expensive unavoidable monthly cost for many families, making them extremely valued donations. No one, especially school-aged girls should ever have to worry about feminine hygiene products. These items are in constant demand and rarely donated. Your donation will make a huge difference to residents and parents that have suffered huge financial blows. 

"Our Babies" Essentials Program

No matter how old they are they will always be our babies and our babies need more than just food.  Let’s show them how much we care by supporting Village Family’s “Our Baby” Essentials program and help enhance our outreach initiatives to improve the quality of life of those that come to us for assistance.
