The Community Survival Center really has the perfect name: while helping the community with the basic survival need of food, the community supports the Center with time, money, and food. Without the support of the community, the Center would not be able to survive! The Ludlow Lions hold a canned food drive each year; a great example of the community providing support.
I really want to highlight our volunteers; we could not operate without them. Seriously! Every day, people step up to help at the Center. Most volunteers work a few hours each week; some a few hours each month. Interested in spending some time with us? We’d love to tell you more about volunteer opportunities.
So, how can you help? There are really three things we need from you: money, time, and donations! Money helps pay our bills – our vendors just won’t take a can of corn in lieu of payment! If you have the time, call or email us about volunteering. Donate food, especially canned meats, stews, and chunky soups; donate clothing, jewelry, dishes, sheets, and small kitchen appliances in working order. We can use it all and we are thankful you are thinking about the Center.
