Special Donation Requests

Periodically, Tri-Lakes Cares has special requests for items that benefit the whole organization. These are typically items which don’t fall under any other category.

Our current requests

Brown paper grocery bags are essential for the food distribution we do! Donations of used bags simply cannot keep up with the demand or the bags themselves wear out after multiple uses.

We’ve found that these from Uline provide the best value and durability. They come 500 bags to a bundles. We could use up to 20 bundles.

You could order and ship directly to TLC. Just call us (Dieter @ 719-481-4864, ext 111) to let us  know they are coming.

One sturdy cooler like this is needed to transport cold beverages or other items which need cooling to events for volunteers, staff or client. The important thing is the size and the sturdy wheels to cover uneven ground. Learn more about it here.
To help keep items secure, including purses of volunteers during their shift, a set of these combination locks would be helpful.
These bins are incredibly useful for organizing and storing donations, as well as transporting supplies to off-site locations.

We could use another 10 bins!

Looking for a unique way to support not only TLC but also a local, small business? You can purchase gifts cards to local restaurants or put a “down payment” at one of our vendors.
