Fill the Household and Food Pantry for the Winter

This time of year is crucial to keep our Emergency Household and Food Pantry stocked and ready to serve the individuals, children and families we serve through the holidays and winter months. Help us by donating items from our most needed list below.

During the week of Turkey Trot and while supplies last, for every 5 items YOU bring, we will give you a Lynchburg Turkey Trot tote helping you carry your load and remind you of your kindness you have shown helping others.

Donations will be accepted at Packet Pick-up on Wednesday, November 27 and on Race Day, November 28! Not only will you help fill the pantry at HumanKind, but we will also share with other food pantries in need! We believe we are stronger as a community when we work together.
