JUST THE BASICSORGANIZE A DRIVE

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

  • Jelly

    After our evening meal service, guests are invited to take Peanut Butter & Jelly sandwiches for an evening snack. Our warehouse is stocked with peanut butter and we receive plenty of bread. Jars of jelly are our greatest food need. A Jelly Drive would help us alleviate hunger.

  • New socks, underwear and t-shirts

    A hot shower and set of clean clothes is so refreshing to our guests putting them in a better position to overcome homelessness. New white athletic socks, underwear and t-shirts for men and women stretch our resources even further.

  • Bottled Water

    Our homeless guests struggle to stay hydrated in the Arizona heat. Cool water and shelter in the shade make all the difference.

  • Hygiene Products

    Personal care items such as soap, shampoo, deodorant, toothbrushes, toothpaste, razors, shaving cream and feminine hygiene products lift mind, body and spirit. Travel-size products are perfect for shower packs.
