Year-Round Pantry


Many of the families we serve are forced to go without essentials. The Year-Round Pantry addresses this by providing those on an as-needed basis.

You can help by donating new items to the Pantry.

The following are always needed, and we invite you to call us if you have other items that families may need:

  • Diapers/wipes.
  • Baby formula.
  • Personal care products, soap, shampoo, deodorant, and toothpaste/toothbrushes.
  • Cleaning supplies, buckets, etc.
  • Laundry detergent, baskets, etc.
  • Toys and games.

Please consider joining the many area businesses, organizations, families, and individuals who partner with Family & Children Services to stock the pantry and keep up with ever-increasing needs as well as donating funds toward enrichment activities.

New items for the year-round pantry and summer enrichment activities may be dropped off at Family & Children Services, 1608 Lake Street, in Kalamazoo.

For more information, contact our Development Office at 269.344.0202.
