Organize a Drive
Organized food and clothing drives for House of Neighborly Service are an invaluable resource supporting the Food and Clothing Programs. You can have fun and make a big impact by holding a food and clothing drive to benefit HNS. It can be a great way to get your family, neighbors, co-workers, and friends involved in something that gives right back to people in our community.
Any of the recommended items listed for the food and clothing pantry are very much appreciated.
"Love your neighbor as yourself."
