Thank you to our community members and small business sponsors!
We had a VERY productive Food + Hygiene Supplies drive from JANUARY 15th - FEBRUARY 15th and collected enough items to reopen the pantry for 2018! A very special thank you to the staff at HILTON GARDENS (Auburn) and ZOTO's INTERNATIONAL (Geneva), for very generous donations of shampoo + personal care products. 

NEW DONATIONS WILL CONTINUE TO BE ACCEPTED.
MOST NEEDED ARE PROTEIN-RICH FOODS SUCH AS; cheese, eggs, canned chicken, canned tuna, fresh hamburger, fresh chicken, chili, Dinte Moore Beef Stew, and peanut butter.

ALSO NEEDED: feminine hygiene products.

Please call or email if you would like to drop off donations or schedule a pick-up with a director.
(607) 437-9157 or email FHFofCCinc@gmail.com Thank you! 


Current Help Needed

FOOD PANTRY:
The Friends Helping Friends of Cayuga County, Inc. food pantry has newly acquired a working refrigerator and 2 freezers! We are now able to accept both nonperishable and perishable foods like eggs, chicken, butter, milk, and fresh produce!


IN NEED OF GENTLY USED TOYS: During our 2017 Holiday Helper Program, FHF offered gently used toys to our low-income families in addition to the primary toy their child requested. This section was very popular among our families and helped them spread their tight holiday budgets further.
Now through November 2018, FHF will be collecting donations of clean, very gently used toys, crafts, boardgames, sports equipment, and activities suitable for children and teens, to be distributed during the 2018 Holiday Helper Program. Please call or email to schedule a drop-off. All donations are tax-deductible. FHFofCCinc@gmail.com or (607) 437-9157.

UPCOMING PROGRAMS:
August 2018: "Back-to-School" (free backpacks + school supplies).
Donations of new backpacks and any school supplies are greatly appreciated! A list of specifically needed items will be posted here this summer and on our Facebook page. Or contact us directly for an updated wish list: (607) 437 - 9157. FHFofCCinc@gmail.com.
