Operation Reach Out is a 501(c)3 non-profit food pantry organization that provides food, free of charge, for each individual screened and approved as having a crisis situation. In our food pantry, we preserve perishable and non-perishable food collected from local grocery stores, produce centers, gleaners and restaurants.
Finders Keepers Operation Reach Out’s subsidiary resale store, Finders Keepers, sells donated clothing and household items at affordable prices. All proceeds from the resale store benefit Operation Reach Out, making up the majority of the income. This store is unique to the community because it offers extremely low prices along with free pick-up of donated items. Any donations to Finders Keepers are greatly appreciated!
