donate1Do you think, “What can I do to help the homeless and poor?” Virtually all of our funding comes directly from public donations from corporations, businesses, foundations, and individuals like you. You may already be supporting Helping Hands Pantry, and for that we thank you. You are helping to feed hungry men, women, and children living in poverty in our county.

How Can I Donate?

We feed over 1000 people a day, and that number is growing! As we have grown and continue to expand, our needs have also increased. Your donations are needed now more than ever and, because we are a 501(c)(3) public charity, are completely tax deductible (please discuss this with your tax professional). Donations can be made via debit or credit card on our website (please see sidebar on left).

Please consider Planned Giving to Helping Hands Pantry as part of your estate planning.

Even though we are not a soup kitchen, we need plenty of volunteers to keep our food bank running, and to grow it to meet more of San Bernardino county’s needs. If you would like to donate your time, please go to the volunteer section.
