Anyone wishing to make a donation of food or cleaning supplies, should call the Pantries before stopping by. Arrangements will be made with Staff for drop-off. Donations may also be ordered and shipped to us via RightGift.

Monetary donations may be mailed to Catholic Charities, 215 E Church St, Elmira, NY 14901 or made online at (click on COVID-19 Donations).

Right now, we want to help as many people as we can. We know people are scared. We know people are unsure of what’s going to happen next. But we are all in this together. We are providing pre-packed food boxes at both our Pantries and to go meals at the Elmira Community Kitchen. We encourage people to come see this week during our regular pantry hours so we can provide them with a box for their family. They don’t have to call ahead, just come down and maintain social distancing while they wait.”
