Churches, companies, students and community leaders organize drives for food, clothing, bottled water, diapers, hygiene products and more. These donated items help us serve even more people and meet more needs.

Organizing a drive is an effective way to involve your family, friends, neighbors and co-workers. You can share this powerful and energizing experience of joining forces, setting a goal for your drive and achieving it to make a difference in your community.

Drives equip our team at Paz de Cristo with the vital resources essential in our mission to Feed, Clothe and Empower.

Current Needs at Paz de Cristo

Food drives help us stretch our resources even further to alleviate hunger.

We are providing Grab ‘n Go dinners every night. Guests are invited to take a free hot, nourishing meal along with a cold, refreshing beverage and peanut butter & jelly sandwiches for an evening snack or breakfast the next morning.



Our warehouse is stocked with peanut butter and we have plenty of bread, but we’re completely out of jelly.



Bottled Water & Beverages

Relief from Arizona’s summertime heat is critical for people experiencing homelessness. Hundreds of bottles of cold water, tea and juice are provided every day.


Pasta Noodles

Spaghetti, macaroni and all types of noodles are favored by our guests. It is helpful to receive ten pounds of the same shape and size of pasta when cooking for a large crowd.


Items can be delivered to Paz de Cristo’s Donation Center from 8 am – 2 pm, Monday through Friday. Our Donation Center is located on the west end of the warehouse on Paz de Cristo’s campus at Broadway Road & Country Club Drive in Mesa.

Drives for all other items such as diapers, clothing and nonperishable foods have been suspended due to the pandemic. Our capacity for sanitizing and disinfecting donations is limited. Thank you for understanding.




To get your drive started, contact our Volunteer Coordinator Priscilla through email or at (480) 464-2370
