Donations

If you ever wondered what 1,600 rolls of toilet paper look like, you should have visited our office at the last Elder Cafe!  We were thrilled and humbled by an incredible donation from the Journeys School – toilet paper for seniors in the community.  Our staff and volunteers handed out rolls to guests at our Elder Cafe, and we look forward to hosting distribution events at senior community buildings in the area.

How Can I Help?

You can help seniors in the community by donating food, personal care items, and cleaning supplies to East Side Elders.  Once the donations are received, our team of volunteers get the items to seniors in the community.  You can order items from our Amazon Wish List and have donations send directly to our office.  You can also bring in donations from other stores right to our office – contact us at 651-683-2326 or Info@EastSideElders.org to set up a time to bring in donations.  These are some of our most-needed items:

 

  • Shampoo
  • Deodorant
  • Sunscreen
  • Peanut butter
  • Whole grain bread
  • Low sodium canned soup
  • Spices – ground pepper is especially requested
