Why Donating Now Is Different Than Before...

During “normal” times, Interfaith helps 17,000 people annually in our community from children to seniors. About 10% of those people are homeless. That means 15,000+ are working people, families, seniors, and veterans who have been faced with challenges needing support from staff and volunteers at Interfaith Community Services.

Now, with the COVID-19 pandemic, the number of people needing assistance has quadrupled. These are working, productive citizens who never imagined how their lives would be turned upside down due to the pandemic. They are your neighbor, friend, or stranger you encountered at the store who is too embarrassed or ashamed to ask for help. They are arriving in need of food, hygiene items and pet food which are all distributed through the food pantry. In addition, Interfaith is currently providing hundreds of lunches each day.

As you can imagine, the need is great so let’s unite and help each other through this difficult time. Open your hearts and pantries, share on Facebook, tell your friends and family and we will see you on Tuesday!

Helping Families In Need Get Through The Pandemic

You can make an impact on the lives of those in need. In order to prioritize health and safety, we have created a Drive-Thru Food Drive to benefit Interfaith, the largest social services agency in North San Diego County; a service for donations of food, hygiene items, and supplies. Simply drive-up and one of our volunteers will happily meet you at your car to receive your donation. Everything counts, everything is appreciated.
