Last year, LEAVEN distributed nearly $825,000 in direct client assistance. We rely on the support and generosity of our community to meet our annual operational needs.

Every dollar counts. Will you help us today?


In-Kind Donations

Members from St. Peter’s Evangelical Lutheran Church have been donating gift boxes to LEAVEN for over 10 years during the Christmas holiday. Our clients are touched by the generosity of others during this difficult time of year. Thank you!

Many businesses, churches, youth groups, or other community groups often seek ways to help the needy in our community. Donations of goods and gift cards help our clients in ways that go beyond our usual assistance. We have an on-going need for:

            • Diapers, all sizes (but mostly sizes 5 and 6 needed)
            • Shampoo and conditioner
            • Deodorant
            • Laundry detergent
            • Antibacterial wipes
            • Toothpaste, toothbrushes, dental floss
            • Grocery store gift certificates
            • Copy paper

Donations of professional services such as electrical and plumbing repairs, cleaning services, and office equipment repairs keep LEAVEN’s administrative costs extremely low enabling greater financial assistance to our clients.

“Thank you so much for the diapers for my baby and the basic necessities such as toothpaste and shampoo that you were able to provide my family. It is a very humbling experience to know that I cannot afford these right now. But you were there to help!” [LEAVEN Client]
