Thank you to the supporters of our mission to serve those in need!

Cornerstone needs

The surrounding region is so generous and often when individuals, families, companies, and organizations learn about all of the programs that Cornerstone has to offer, they often ask how they can help. 


Below is a list of specific items for each ministry program. Cornerstone is open 24/7, so please contact us before you drop off anything and we will make arrangements to receive the donations at the most convenient location for you.

Because we provide clients with pre-packed bags of nonperishable foods, we have to limit the weight and size of food items.  Therefore, we ask for regular size food items instead of large or family size items or multi-pound items.  And we cannot put glass jars in the bags of food.


We greatly appreciate all donations,
including grocery store gift cards!
