Thank you for helping US FILL THE CART!

Fill the Cart 2019 (1).png

We’re grateful for all the donors, companies, and volunteers who supported our 2019 Fill the Cart Collection Drive, Feb. 25 to March 19, 2019. Our donors and partners collected nearly 4,000 basic needs items. These items were sorted by 55 volunteers from our Young Leaders Society and distributed to local nonprofit agencies serving those in need. See photos.

Program Description

Everyone deserves to have their basic needs met. You can help us provide cleaning products, personal hygiene items, and linens to individuals in Kent County who struggle to afford them.

Simply add a few things to your shopping cart whenever you go to the store or shop on our Amazon wish list.

This year's collection themes are:
Bare Necessities (personal hygiene: shampoo, toothpaste, deodorant, etc.)
Spring Cleaning (cleaning supplies)

You can also collect as a group! Sign up to run a collection with your co-workers, teammates, or friends. Register your group below and we'll send you a toolkit with all the materials and info you need to start your collection.

You can create a fun volunteer project by making do-it-yourself cleaning supplies!

Items can be dropped off at the following locations between Feb. 25 and March 19:
