CES Needs List

Click here to see a listing of needs that you may be able to help supply.


  • Hygiene supplies
  • Paper grocery bags with handles

Drop off at CES - 1900 11th Avenue S. 


Food is, of course, the main ongoing aspect of CES. Food donations and/or funds to buy food are always welcome. As a result of our food purchase "connections," any dollar donated to CES to purchase food goes 10-20 times farther than a dollar spent at the store. For example, for the price of one can of corn at your grocery store, CES can purchase 10 cans of corn through the food banks.

Top Food Shelf Items Needed:
Please help us improve the quality of nutrition in our neighborhood by donating the following healthy foods. Hygiene items also are needed.

Fill a bag or two of groceries and hygiene items, and bring them to CES, or, call to set a delivery time. If you have time, we would be glad to give you a tour and introduce you to CES in action!
