Information regarding qualified agencies that can help will be available at our distribution offices.

Each application is considered on its individual merits. We do not guarantee any application will be accepted, nor do we guarantee applicants will receive assistance each and every month. We shall do our best to adjust to the most urgent needs of the communities we serve.
