HOW TO MAKE A DONATION? Did you know that food stamps are not able to be used for the purchase of personal care or cleaning items and that laundry detergent is the most stolen item from grocery stores? With this in mind Market Street Pantry is asking for donations of these vital products: any toiletries (soap, shampoo, conditioner, deodorant, toothpaste, toothbrushes, razors for men or women) and any type of household cleaning supplies. Also, we always accept check donations (please include in the memo line, Market Street Pantry).

Meal-A-Month
We have five teams that prepare and serve meals at St. Vincent Haven in Newark. Each team prepares and serves one meal a month.

Open Door Community
The Open Door Community is a residential community in the Catholic Worker tradition (we’re sometimes called a Protestant Catholic Worker House). We seek to dismantle racism, sexism and hetero-sexism, abolish the death penalty, and proclaim the Beloved Community through loving relationships with some of the most neglected and outcast of God’s children: the homeless and our sisters and brothers who are in prison.

Licking County Coalition for Housing
LCCH provides a wide variety of housing services to homeless and low-income members of our Licking County community. LCCH now operates over 40 units of Transitional Housing for homeless families and individuals – serving nearly 80 households (including more than 100 homeless children) every year.
