Pick Up Donations & Orders

Those doing Direct Retail Pickups should be able to repetitively lift around 50lbs, but there may be help available on site. You may wish to shadow another volunteer doing a pickup before performing one alone to learn about the operation. A large capacity vehicle (van, truck or SUV) is recommended for all pickups. The Heart to Heart van may be available for pickups, if scheduled in advance. To use the van, a signed waiver form, copies of your driver’s license, and insurance card will be required. If you are new to this procedure, please contact the Food Pantry Manager at least 24 hours beforehand for further instructions. Please email hearttoheart@fcchurch.com if you have any questions about any of the pickups listed below.
