Personal Care Item
We go beyond providing food to families in need. We offer basic hygiene products, paper products, cleaning supplies, plus diapers and baby wipes. Everyone deserves to wake up ready to tackle the day feeling clean and energized. Families are allowed 5 personal care items per month.
Households that check into our Food Pantry may access our clothing closet and will be allowed 5 clothing items per family member per month. There is no fee for the clothing items. We accept seasonal clothing and shoes as donations.
Students in the Johnston School District are provided weekend food support, which includes Dragon Power, for any families who experience food insecurity for any length of time.
Do you need financial assistance? The Benevolence Fund is open to those who live within the Johnston School District boundaries, and it does require a short application/interview process. We are able to assist with financial needs such as rental assistance, utility assistance or other emergency financial needs.
