Ways which you can help the Disch-DeClouet Social Service Center

Prayer
Please pray for the Center, its ministry and its mission. We also ask for prayers for our clients, our volunteers and our benefactors.

Volunteer
If you think the Lord may be calling you to this ministry, call Carol Gaignard at 256-2525 and make arrangements for a "come and see" experience, no strings attached.

Clothing and Food Donations
Drop off times: Monday-Wednesday 8:30 to 2:30 - Thursday 8:30 to 11:00. Drop-off is located at the back of the building in the parking lot on Pershing Street.  We accept all clothing and small household items.  We need more men and boys clothing.  We accept nonperishable food in its original containers.  We need more sources of protein such as canned tuna and salmon, peanut butter, and dried beans.

Memorial Donations
You may give a donation in the name of a deceased friend or family member and we will send an acknowledgement to the family informing them that a gift has been received in the name of the deceased from you. We also enter their name in our memorial book and pray for them.

Gift Donations
You may give a donation in the name of someone celebrating a birthday, anniversary, Christmas, etc. We will send a congratulatory greeting to them informing them that you have given a gift in their name. We also enter their name in our gift book and pray for them.

Remembering the Center in your Will
Through the years we have received bequests, which have helped us tremendously in our ministry. These benefactors are listed in our memorial book and we continue to pray for them.

Monthly, Quarterly or Annual Donations
Our Utility and Housing Assistance ministry requires about $900 a day to keep utilities turned on. We could not do this without ongoing regular support. We pray for our benefactors each day at the Center.

You may wish to talk to your tax advisor about the advantages of making IRA required minimum distributions directly to a charity to avoid distribution taxes. This is information only, not legal advice.
