Donate Food

just 3 things logoSince 2011, we have been providing food to young people in the JFCS Real World Job Development and Youth In Transition programs.

Please help JFCS stock the Just 3 Things food pantry by donating just 3 non-perishable food items each month and provide a needy youth with food as they transition from foster care to independence. JFCS is grateful for any donated items you wish to drop off. Don't have time to shop? Make a cash donation to Just 3 Things and we'll do the shopping for you!

If you are interested in donating canned food items for the pantry or if you have questions, please contact Holly Packer at hollyfoxpacker@gmail.com or JFCS Volunteer Coordinator​ at Lisa.Blumstein@jfcsaz.org
