COVID-19 Volunteer Opportunities
Help feed the women and children staying at First Light.
We're partnering with Bogue's and Rojo to help feed people in Highland Park who are suffering from food insecurity due to COVID 19. You are encouraged to purchase a meal from Bogue's or Rojo for your family and pay it forward by purchasing another for a family in need. You can also make donations to the IPC Food Pantry Fund.
We're helping Highland UMC to provide 50 sacked lunches every Tuesday for the homeless.
Donate Homemade Masks
Help us provide homemade masks for our Food Pantry clients, STAIR and LIFT OFF students, Meals on Wheels clients and others in our neighborhood. Sew and drop off the masks in the box under the covered walkway on 31st Street S.
The pantry is closed. No food donations are being accepted. However, clients are still being provided food through City Meats vouchers. Please consider making a 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 $47 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.
