Growing Home’s top needs center around keeping the Food Pantry stocked and operational during the Coronavirus pandemic. Below is a list of the foods and non-food items that Growing Home needs to keep serving families during this crisis.

Throughout the month of March, we will be placing special emphasis on the Personal Hygiene items below as a part of our Essential Services Campaign. For more information on how to participate in the Essential Services Campaign, click here.

Donations can be dropped off Monday through Friday between the hours of 10:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. at our distribution center at The MAC Recreation Center located at 3295 W 72nd Ave, Westminster, CO 80030. The doors to the MAC remain locked during the day, so you will need to ring the doorbell when you arrive and a volunteer or Growing Home staff member will come to accept your donation.
