August 2023

Late summer and early fall provide a unique opportunity for food and clothing donations at Valley Outreach.

As you harvest the produce from the garden and gear up to send the kids back to school, think of how you might support Valley Outreach this season. This time of year, Valley Outreach greatly appreciates donations of fresh garden produce for our food shelf and kids clothing for StyleXchange.
