Food and Other Items
We need the basics: canned meat, fruit juice, canned fruit, canned corn,
green beans and peas, shampoo, tooth paste, tooth brushes, cereal, peanut
butter, tomato and chicken noodle soup, toilet paper, ketchup, mustard, salt
and pepper. Special treats for our clients include cookies, cake and frosting mixes, single pot coffee packs, etc.
Many of our clients cannot afford birthday gifts for their children and this is an area where we can help. Age appropriate children's gifts are always needed, especially gifts for older children. Schools or religious eduction classes might enjoy working on this project.
Beyond financial support for housing and/or utilities, support for job hunting, employment and other basic needs are always a welcome donation. Specific examples include:
- Local bus passes
- Car repair gift certificates from Gurney’s Automotive*
- Shoe gift certificates from Alec’s Shoes*
- Clothing gift certificates from local stores (i.e. Walmart, Target, Kohls, etc.)
*Long-standing business relationship with Corpus Christi Assistance for services or products provided.
