Silver Key Pantry needs your help filling the shelves

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — The new Silver Key Pantry is asking for your helping filling the shelves with items needed for seniors.

Silver Key says although they do receive a monthly food allotment, things like personal hygiene products are not included but needed in the program.

Silver Key has space for seniors to not only receive their Federal food program box each month, but also choose items they might not be able to receive anywhere else.

The following items are needed:

Canned Pantry Items:

  • Chicken
  • Fruit
  • Vegetables
  • Soups
  • Beans
  • Chili
  • Pasta
  • Peanut Butter
  • Jelly
  • Cereal

Hygiene Items:

  • Toilet Paper
  • Paper Towels
  • Shampoo / Conditioner (small bottles)
  • Deodorant
  • Toothpaste
  • Toothbrushes
  • Lotion
  • Baby Powder
  • Tissues

All donations of non-perishable food items and hygiene products may be dropped off at the Silver Key office at 1605 S. Murray Boulevard from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Each month, Silver Key provides nutrition assistance to nearly 1,200 seniors enrolled in the Pantry.
