Here are some projects that your group or organization can do to help the AMEN House.

Personal Care Drive

We are frequently short on personal care items for our clients. You can help by collecting the following items and bringing them to the AMEN House.

  • Deodorant
  • Dish washing liquid
  • Liquid laundry soap
  • Shampoo
  • Large bar soap
  • Toothpaste and toothbrushes
  • Toilet paper

Dish washing and Laundry Soap Bottling

In order to ensure that more of our clients receive donated dish washing and laundry soap, we divide larger containers into smaller water bottles. Collect plastic water bottles, purchase bulk liquid dish washing and laundry soap, divide the bulk containers into the smaller saved water bottles, label the bottles and bring them to the AMEN House.

Double Bagging

The AMEN House uses a large amount of bags to hold the canned goods we provide our clients. The weight of these cans requires that the bags be doubled to ensure that they do not come apart. You can help by collecting bags, doubling them by inserting on bag inside another and bringing the doubled bags to the AMEN House. Doubled bags should be of the same color.

Shelf Stable Kits

The AMEN House provides shelf stable food to clients that do not have permanent addresses or a place to live. Each kits contain the following items that can be opened without a can opener.

  • 6 water bottles
  • 2 cans of tuna
  • 2 spaghetti o's
  • 2 soup
  • 2 baked beans
  • 4 vienna sausage
  • 8 fruit cups
  • 4 cans of vegetables
  • 6 cereal bowls
  • 1 jar peanut butter
  • 6 cliff bars
  • 8 plastic ware

The above items can be purchased and assembled into large bags and brought to the AMEN House.

Food rescue

We need volunteers to help with food rescue from our various food partners.
