In Kind

Donations are an important way to support our programs while providing important items for Giraffe Laugh families.

If you have an idea for another item, please contact or one of the site directors to let them know about your ideas!

Drop off items at any of our locations.

Here are some in-demand and popular items for our pantries:


  • Shelf-stable proteins (peanut butter, canned beans or tuna fish, etc.)
  • Fresh fruits and vegetables
  • Frozen meats
  • Canned dinners, fruits, and vegetables
  • Condiments
  • Baking items
  • Dairy products (milk, yogurt, sour cream, cheese, etc.)


  • Paper products that cannot be bought with food stamps such as feminine products, diapers, wipes, Ziploc bags, napkins, paper towels, toilet paper, and cleaning products.
  • Gifts for children to give to one another so that when they are invited to a birthday party, they have a gift to bring.
