Special Distributions

The Lord's Pantry has special distributions throughout the year to benefit the families we serve. These specials are a welcome addition to the monthly food distribution.


Christmas in July

We recognize the need for our families to receive items once a year that are not available during their monthly food distribution. Our Christmas in July distribution consists of personal care, laundry detergent, dish soap and snack items.  Though we are always in need of these donations, we have more significant needs in May and June when we are preparing for this special distribution.

School Supplies

We distribute new book bags and school supplies to our families with school-age children. We welcome monetary donations and/or school supplies and back packs in July for our distribution in August


Sneakers Distribution

In 2014, we began a new program distributing a brand new pair of sneakers to every school age child.  We partner with R U Villa in order to provide higher quality sneakers.  If you would like to support this program, we accept cash donations to help offset the cost of purchasing these sneakers


We distribute over 250 Thanksgiving Baskets every year to families the Saturday before Thanksgiving. These baskets include traditional thanksgiving dinner items , appetizer items, breakfast foods and desserts.  We depend on the generosity of individuals, families, churches, groups and corporations to make this distribution a success.  If you would like to donate food items, please print our Thanksgiving ChecklistThis checklist identifies the items we place in each families basket.  We also accept donations of frozen turkeys.   


Christmas program providing gifts to our children and their families.  We welcome individuals, families, groups or organizations to adopt a registered Lord's Pantry family so all our families may enjoy their Christmas!
