We LOVE celebrating birthdays with our clients. Often times, they do not have the resources to purchase birthday cakes and candles for themselves or their children. This is where YOU come in. Host a Birthday Bag drive and collect the following items and drop them off in a gift bag to help those we serve have a birthday they deserve: Here's what we need for each bag: Cake mix, icing, candles, paper plates and birthday hats/decorations, and a birthday card. Some even provide a $10+ WalMart gift card as a special birthday surprise!

Camille's Kids/Veterans Bag Drive

Help us create healthy snack bags for the children, veterans, and the homeless that we serve at Minnie's Food Pantry. These bags include items such as: chips, drinks, granola bars, fruit snacks, crackers, canned meat (with pop tops) and other easily accessible items. Sacks are always decorated with inspirational messages of hope before they are distributed!
