We rely on donations to help us help the community.  At Community Pathways of Steele County, Inc., your donations are needed to help so many people.  In the past year, over 3982 people have needed services in Steele County.

All cash donations allow us to purchase food at drastically reduced pricing.  It also helps us to provide new clothing for specific needs such as employment or emergency needs.  

Unique Finds

We will be accepting donations on Friday's only from 9:00am-12:00pm and we will be limiting it to 4 boxes/bags for each visit. Due to high volume and space issues we will need to be very specific about the items that we can accept. 

We will be accepting basic necessities:

  • Seasonal clothing in good condition

  • Kitchen and household items

  • Bedding and bath towels

*We will not be accepting jewelry, books, CD's, DVD's, toys, home decor etc. Only basic needs for now. In time we will go back to normal intake. Which is listed below. Thank you for your cooperation. 

We are happy to accept any new and gently used clothing and household items that are clean and in reusable condition (no stains, tears, broken or missing parts/pieces, or items that are not working properly).  

For the safety of our volunteers, whenever possible, please pack donations in kitchen-sized garbage bags or boxes that can easily be lifted by one person.

We accept:

  • Gently used, seasonal clothing

  • Shoes, boots, and accessories

  • Winter coats, hats, boots, and gloves - especially in early fall

  • Personal care items like shampoo, soap, and toothpaste

  • Kitchenware (electronics should be in good working order)

  • Gently used or new linens and towels

The Marketplace

We believe that no one should go hungry.

We accept:

  • Any non-perishable foods are gladly accepted.  They should not be outdated.

  • We prefer healthy, nutritious food donations such as canned meats, fruits, and vegetables.

  • Spices

  • Condiments such as pickles, ketchup, and mustard.

  • Personal care items including women's hygiene products

  • Fresh-picked produce from local gardeners or those with fruit trees are quite welcome.
