Ongoing Collections

Shoes! Shoes! Shoes!
Used shoes are again being requested for children and adults in Roatan, Honduras. Donated shoes can be of any size or type, especially athletic shoes. Sports clothes and equipment will also be accepted. Donations will be taken to Honduras and sold by some of the island boys to learn accounting and book keeping and the funds will be used for a new animal shelter on the island. Other items that are collected: pet supplies, clothing and sports equipment, kitchen supplies, and office equipment. For more information visit

Food on the First
Northwoods has collected thousands of pounds of food for local food banks. On the first of every month members, friends, and visitors are encouraged to bring nonperishable foods for collection: pasta, peanut butter, crackers, cereals, canned goods, tuna, and the like. Our Social, Environmental, and Economic Justice Committee offers reusable bags as a monthly reminder to collect and bring in foods. Bags are located in the hallway next to the office.
