We can help
Food: Our food supply comes from local merchants, church and school groups, scouts, and other organizations, as well as individuals. Cash donations are used when purchases are necessary.
Clothing: SGL volunteers receive, sort, and organize clothing donated from local churches, individuals, and merchants making it readily available to needy persons within our service area.
Financial Assistance: When it is deemed appropriate and funds are available, limited financial assistance is given in the areas of electric bills and prescriptions. Electric bills must have final notice on the bill.
Spiritual Support: SGL constantly strives to convey a loving spirit and offers prayers with the clients, gives them Bibles, and encourages affiliation and participation in local church services and activities.
We serve clients on a first come, first served basis between the hours of 9am-11am; a sign-up sheet is available shortly before we open to secure your place.
