Donate Goods and Services

Thank you for taking a moment to check out our list of needed goods and services.  This is by no means an exhaustive list of the needs of People Helping People, but rather a guide.  We operate four key programs, have a number of partnerships with other human services related organizations, and manage our own resource center in Spring Hill, FL.  Our needs may vary greatly from time-to-time, season-to-season, and program-to-program.  When in doubt, do not hesitate to contact us.

Food Pantry

The food pantry serves two of our four programs; (1) the backpack program for students, and (2) our assistance program for the homeless/near-homeless. This being the case our biggest need is for food stuffs that require minimal preparation, maximum nutrition, and ease of use.  We will accept, and make use of, donations that don't meet the needs of these two programs, but donors are asked to keep our needs in mind in order to make the greatest impact for the people we serve. 


Approximately 20% of the food used in our backpack and homeless/near-homeless programs is from food donations.  Your contributions of food are greatly appreciated.  Financial donations can also be used to purchase food at greatly discounted prices through local community programs, national commercial buying programs, and wholesale purchasing agreements.
