Emergency Food and Supply Box

In light of the spread of COVID-19 and the vulnerable population we serve, our recipients have additional needs during this time. If you are looking for a new way to get involved, please consider putting together or sponsoring a CHCMOW Emergency Supply Box. Even if you cannot fill it with all the items (we recognize paper goods are particularly hard to come by these days), you can still make a food box. The contents of the box are:

  • 1-2 Rolls of toilet paper
  • 1 - Roll of paper towels
  • 1 - Box of tissues
  • 2 - Protein based entrées (tuna fish, chicken-noodle soup, beef stew, shelf-stable meal, etc.) Must be pop-top or easy tear open for our recipients. (No cans that require a can-opener, please.)
  • Small jar of creamy peanut butter
  • Small jar of jam (no seeds)
  • Sliced bread
  • Soft granola or cereal bars, if possible low sugar (ex. Nutrigrain bars)
  • Small cans/bottles/containers of fruit or fruit/vegetable juice blends
  • Individual fruit cups packed in their own juice (no added sugar)

If you are not able to shop for a complete box and would like to participate, please see list below for needed items or we can put together a box for you! Click here to donate [$25 = 1 emergency supply box]. Please write "supply box" in the “Please Inform” section on the webform.
