How to Contribute Food and Dry Goods

The Pawling Resource Center welcomes donations of labeled canned and boxed foods and toiletries year-round. Please pay special attention to the condition of the packaging and the expiration date, as items that have expired or are poorly packaged will be not be accepted. Home-prepared or unlabeled food items are not accepted for distribution through the food pantry. Donations are accepted during business hours, Monday through Saturday, up to a half hour before closing time.

Sometimes people fall on hard times, either because of infirmity or because of loss of income. And when they do, they need to know they are not alone— especially in a caring community like Pawling. Since 1976, the Resource Center has provided direct services, at no charge, to individuals and families including transportation to medical appointments, a complete food pantry, and the loan of medical equipment. Most of all, we are here, with open arms, for residents in need. The Pawling Resource Center is a non-profit organization that is funded mostly through local contributions and some grants. Every donation we get from friends and neighbors helps build a stronger community. Whether it’s an annual contribution or an individual or corporate sponsorship of one of our events, the gift you give will be a lasting legacy for the future of Pawling. We urge you to participate. Please remember the Pawling Resource Center in your charitable bequests. You can help in many ways:

  • Come and volunteer.
  • Donate time or resources.
  • Make a financial contribution.
  • Bring in non-expired dry and canned food, household paper products, toiletries, and sundries.
