You shop. Amazon gives.

Donations from concerned individuals, businesses, restaurants, grocery stores, and community groups make an enormous difference and help us feed nearly 5,000 people a month—many of whom could not put food on the table without help.

Receiving food, personal care products and baby care items from Together We Cope during tough times enables our clients to pay their rent or mortgage and stay in their homes.

Individuals and families residing within our service area are eligible to receive groceries once a month.

Personal care products

Your donations enable us to distribute personal care products that are not covered by the food stamp program (Link card). Personal care product wish list at Amazon

  • bar soap
  • body lotion
  • body wash
  • dental floss
  • deodorant / antiperspirant
  • diapers
  • Q-tips (travel size)
  • razors
  • shampoo
  • shaving cream
  • toothbrushes
  • toothpaste


Diapers are also not covered by the food stamp program (Link card). They’re not a luxury, and babies go through plenty of them. Donating diapers or hosting a diaper drive are two great ways to help. Donating baby care essentials is a great way to help the littlest ones. Baby care wish list at Amazon

Donations of grocery store gift cards are particularly helpful during the holiday season. Holiday item wish list at Amazon
