To prevent hunger and homelessness, FAM relies not only on donations of funds but is also in need of in-kind donations. This list is a strategic and focused inventory of items needed. These items help us provide the best possible care and services to our clients. Your donations are critical gifts that save FAM thousands of dollars each year, in turn helping to dedicate the greatest amount of our resources directly to individuals and families relying on us!
Ideally, your cash gifts allow us to purchase items directly. Click here to make a cash gift now.
We accept new or gently used items. For any questions, please contact FAM by email or call us at (949) 492-8477.
