In addition to daily food distribution, we partner with other organizations and churches annually to provide over 2,100 families during the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays with full food baskets.

LifeStyles links those in need to the available services and funding available to provide them with the emergency assistance needed to provide healthy livelihoods and self-sufficiency. The Samaritan Project is a food and clothing program that is available to anyone in need. The food pantry offers groceries for anyone in need who requests food. Participants receive three days of food, which can include non-perishable canned and boxed goods, meat, fruit, and bakery items. Hygiene and baby products are also provided on an as-needed basis. The clothes closet, formally known as Sisters 4 You, was a professional clothing donation program strictly for women heading out into the workforce. Since the devastating tornado that struck La Plata in 2002, the clothing donation program grew into a closet for all members of the family who need clothing. The closet is open every weekday, and participants must show valid photo identification. The closet is stocked by donations from the community, and is staffed primarily by volunteers.
