Anchorage has partnered with Community Aid

There is a collection bin at First Church. Anchorage will be paid by the pound for clothing, shoes, blankets, curtains, bedding. Basically, anything that is cloth. OR, you can take your donation to Community Aid and request that Anchorage Breakfast’s account be credited. In addition Anchorage will receive $300 worth of $25 gift cards quarterly for us to bless our guests. After six months we will be eligible to receive a grant from Community Aid. Since 2009, Community Aid has given back 11 million dollars to non-profits.
