Catholic Charities of the Diocese of Wilmington again asks all its communities to “Stock the Pantry” by contributing nonperishable food goods and other items for households struggling to put food on their tables.

Currently, Catholic Charities serves over 3,000 households each year through all programs.

The drive will continue throughout the month of June 2020. Donors can drop off donations and grocery store gift cards at Catholic Charities locations during regular business hours.

In addition to nonperishable food, dry goods and grocery store gift cards, Catholic Charities will also accept monetary donations in order to purchase additional food to fill bags for the food distribution programs.

To make an online monetary donation, visit Catholic Charities’ website, www.cdow.org/charities and click the DONATE button. Under “Please designate my gift to the following ministry” choose Food Assistance.

Catholic Charities will accept donations at its locations Monday through Friday between 9 a.m.-4 p.m. For more information, call the number at the specific location.
