DRIVE-UP FOOD PANTRY

We are hosting a Drive-Up Food Pantry once a month this summer. You can help in the following ways:
  • Volunteer: We need over 100 volunteers to make this happen. Sign up for volunteering opportunities the week of and day of the event.
  • Donate: $50 will feed a family for a week. Drop off non-perishables goods at Hope MKE. Please email the Executive Director at hgonzalez@crimsoncharities.org to coordinate a time for your drop-off. 
    • Food Need: At our drive in May, we discovered a lot of families need baby food. This is our biggest need from a food donation standpoint.​ *All other non-perishable items will be used too!
  • Share: Spread the word to help us do more Drive-Up Food Pantries this summer! 
 
Upcoming Drive: August 8, 2020|Time: 10 AM - 12 PM |Location: Hope MKE

PARTICIPANT INFO: 

  • How it works? You drive or walk up next to the building, where our team will come to you with food. One box of perishable/frozen food is given with 1 bag of nonperishable items to each family (while supplies lasts). 
  • Information Requested: You don't need to give/share additional information to receive food. We do ask for your name and cell so we can let you know when we have more things going on in the future, but you do not have to give it out if you don't want to. 
  • Cost: This is a 100% free service thanks to our generous sponsors and donors!
  • First come, First Served: We will continue to give food out until we run out. We recommend coming as close to the start of the drive as possible. 
  • Health Precautions: Our volunteers are required to fill out a health screening questionnaire prior to volunteering. We have all volunteers wear masks and gloves to pack and distribute the food. In addition, we have spots marked around the building so people can follow social distancing practices.

Food Pantry

Our pantry is focused on helping families build self-sufficiency. Working families need help at times to fill their cupboards, and as a result we have a food pantry to provide for their needs. Our food pantry program also has toiletries, and other household supplies available. 

We are partnering with local organizations to fill our cupboards and to bless people in the community in times of need. 

Contact us regarding donation opportunities. Your ideas and contributions are greatly appreciated. Thank you!​

If you need food text us at 262-346-3885 at to set up a time to use the pantry.
