We are able to meet the needs of the residents of Joseph Floyd Manor each week because of YOUR generosity. Whether we are talking about our female or male residents, elderly or different-abled, it is important to remember that we all have the same or similar needs, and the need for food, toiletries and personal items is absolutely no different. The folks we help may be on fixed incomes, financially struggling, dealing with unplanned expenses, or just coming up short, so being able to provide these basic items is a big deal to our residents (and greatly appreciated).

Collect a little of everything, or focus on just a couple of items – it is completely up to you. Whatever items you decide to collect and donate, will certainly be put to good use and will never go to waste.
