Donation Guidelines

Pantry Donations

We accept unopened, unexpired donations of food, personal hygiene items and household cleaning supplies.

Please check expiration dates prior to donating. Expired products are disposed of, and require TLC resources to do so.

We also accept fresh produce from your garden, fit for human consumption.

Medical Equipment

TLC accepts donations for Durable Medical Equipment (DME) of such items as canes, walkers, wheelchairs, crutches, etc.
