For those living in poverty, simply having something to eat and a safe place to sleep are the top priorities in life. There is little money left for other necessities like clothes and shoes, diapers, soap, shampoo, toothpaste and other personal care items. Although food kitchens and homeless shelters are doing all they can to feed and house those living in poverty, there are so many “non-basic necessities” they simply can’t provide. Your Grandmother’s Cupboard was started as a means of filling those needs. Volunteers at Your Grandmother’s Cupboard collect and sort items to make them ready for distribution. This time consuming activity is a vital part of the ministry. They are always looking for willing hands that have an hour or two to spare to help.
