What Is Needed?
We get this question all of the time – how can I help? What food is needed at the Sparrows Nest, what supplies at The Well, how can I volunteer? Here’s some quick info:
Food for the Sparrows Nest:
- Protein is great (canned meats, pasta sauce with meat, soup with meat)
- Canned fruit and veggies
- Healthy snacks – breakfast bars, granola
- PB&J/healthy cereal
- Dried beans/canned beans and pasta
Supplies for The Well (our day resource center for people who are homeless)
- Individual toiletries (shampoo, shower gel, razors, deodorant, etc.)
- Towels and washcloths
- Coffee, creamer and sugar
- Laundry detergent
- Cleaning supplies
- Canned food with pop tops

I was wanting to see if anything specific is needed for the Thanksgiving holiday and Christmas coming up? I am happy to donate any goods needed, and also if there is a program to cook a mean for a family for Thanksgiving I’d be more than happy to. Please let me know.
Hi Virginia – that would be great. If you would like to cook and deliver a meal just email firstname.lastname@example.org. If you would like to help serve a meal at Burroughs Mollette on Thanksgiving day from 11-2 just contact Shauntia Lewis at 912-258-9146 or email email@example.com. Our food pantry is always in need of nonperishables and The Well can always use individual sized toiletries such as those you receive at a hotel. If you would like to talk, just call Nancy at 912-261-8512 x114. Thanks!
We are completing the harvest of our 2 grapefruit trees and 1 orange tree over the next couple days.
There is more than we can consume or store.
I have 3 bags ready to go.
I would like to donate them but I see your request is for canned fruit. Do you know who might take fresh from the tree fruit?
Hey Mary Flo! We could definitely use the fruit either at the Sparrows Nest food pantry or at The Well. The Sparrows Nest food pantry is open Mon-Thurs 9-12 or you can call me 261-8512 x114 and we’ll arrange to have someone meet you. It’s located at 2911 Altama. The Well is open 7-5 every day and is at 1101 Gloucester. If you’d like to take it there, just go inside first and ask for a manager. They will help you get the food received. Thanks so much for thinking of us!
