*Please purchase all non-perishable items that are properly sealed and not out of date.
*Please do not purchase any glass jars! They break in the boxes – makes a mess!
*Please pack items in plastic or reusable grocery bags. You can also pack in a box!
*Please do not add anything “extra” (decor, candy, extra food). All baskets are re-packed so they all look the same and can be given out fairly to our clients.
