Why Donate?

Stone Soup is dedicated to helping families and individuals trying to stretch their budgets. Helping the community is a key aspect to what makes Stone Soup different.


Our expenses throughout the year accumulate, since we do not receive assistance from the local, state or federal governments or agencies. 


While our sales, meet a portion of our expenses, fundraising, grants and donations are necessary for us to survive financially. Help us continue our work within the community by donating your unwanted items to help provide to those in need within the community.



Beginning January 9, 2021, donations will be taken every Saturday  

10:00 a.m.-3:00p.m.

   We prefer that donations be in plastic garbage bags (soft items) or cardboard boxes ( hard items). 

             Please do not drop off donations after hours.
