The Mobile Grocery accepts most all forms of payment, including SNAP/EBT and offers different incentives for free produce for those using their SNAP/EBT cards and seniors who meet income guidelines and are 60 and over.
The grocery relies on volunteers to assist with its operations, and also needs other donated items for the housing programs it operates for individuals and families with children who were formerly homeless. Many of these items are essential, especially during COVID-19, in order to keep their clients, staff and volunteers as safe as possible.
Here’s what they need
- Gift cards: Walmart, Meijer, Kroger, Target
- Cleaning supplies: All-purpose cleaners, toilet and shower cleaners, hand sanitizer, sanitizing wipes
- Paper products: Toilet paper, paper towels, garbage bags
- Laundry supplies: Detergent, dryer sheets and fabric softener
- Personal hygiene items: Men’s and women’s deodorant, soap/body wash, shampoo/conditioner
- School supplies
In order to limit personal contact, donation drop-offs can be scheduled by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling (937) 293-1945 ext. 535. Items can also be purchased online and directly shipped to Homefull, 829 S. Gettysburg Ave. Dayton, OH 45417.
For those interested in volunteering with the Mobile Grocery store, please email email@example.com or call (937) 293-1945 ext. 535.
