MEND - Meet Each Need With Dignity has been helping families in need since 1971. We want to offer a helping hand to the neediest families so they can get back up on their feet. We have been doing that with the help of volunteers (like you!) for over 40 years.

We offer important services to families that are in need. This includes serving hot lunches to homeless individuals and families; stuffing food boxes; teaching English to adult students; tutoring elementary, middle, and high school students in our afterschool program; and so much more. We provide many essential services to individuals and families who often don't have anywhere else to turn, providing hope as they work to get back on their feet.

Stamp Out Hunger

Stamp Out Hunger

Stamp out Hunger is the nation’s largest all-volunteer one-day food collection effort. Volunteers help collect and organize items to stock their local food pantries.

Located at MENDs onsite warehouse group volunteers will assist MEND by helping sort through various donated goods to be given out to various food banks and the community. Volunteers will review donated items and sort by item type as well as organize and store items in boxes.
