We rely on donations to help us help the community. At Community Pathways of Steele County, Inc., your contributions are needed to help so many people. Over 3982 people have needed services in Steele County in the past year.
All cash donations allow us to purchase food at drastically reduced pricing. It also helps us provide new clothing for new employment opportunities or emergencies.
We will be accepting donations on Mondays from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm, Tuesdays from 5:00 pm to 8:00 pm, Wednesdays from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm, and Fridays from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm, and we will be limiting it to 4 boxes/bags for each visit. Due to high volume and space issues, we must be very specific about the items we can accept.
We will be accepting basic necessities:
Seasonal clothing in good condition
Kitchen and household items
Bedding and bath towels
We are happy to accept any new and gently used clothing and household items that are clean and reusable (no stains, tears, broken or missing parts/pieces, or items that are not working correctly).
For the safety of our volunteers, whenever possible, please pack donations in kitchen-sized garbage bags or boxes that one person can easily lift.
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
We believe that no one should go hungry.
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 They should not be outdated.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.
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 is quite welcome.
