Donations can be dropped off or sent via a delivery service Monday - Friday, 8:30 am - 4:30 pm to IPC Community Ministries' entrance on 31st Street South, up from the covered walkway. Please call Lisa at 205 933-3725 and let her know when you plan to arrive and she will meet you or your delivery service at the entrance to bring the food inside.

    Please consider making a monetary gift to assist IPC Social Services with the larger vouchers and with our utility, rent and medical assistance program. Here are some examples of how we are using these funds during this COVID-19 crisis:
    * A gift of $45 to IPC Social Services will purchase a voucher to feed a family of four for a week to ten days, providing them with two boxes of food from City Meats in Woodlawn: a box of canned, boxed and dry goods and a box of frozen meat, vegetables, and fresh dairy, eggs and bread;
    * A gift of $20 will help families purchase essential items they are not allowed to buy using their food stamps, such as diapers, wipes, toilet paper, paper towels and cleaning supplies;
    * A gift of $30 will buy a gasoline card to help those still working during this crisis get to their employment;
    * A gift of any size, pooled with other gifts, can assist people in paying utility bills, rent, and in purchasing prescription medications and other needed medical equipment.
