Emergency Aid Top 10 List

Emergency Aid of Boulder City, NVAs we know, the pantry over at Emergency Aid is rarely over-flowing and with the holidays upon us — I’m sure there will be turkey drives (never mind all the yummy fixin’s that are a must).

But I was wondering what really good “staple” items are good for Emergency Aid — the kind that have long shelf lives and/or the ones that leave the shelves the fastest…so I asked Fan Jeanne Thompson (who is one of the hard-working folks that help out over at Emergency Aid) and she gave me this “Top 10 List” to pass along.

I know that Albertsons has a box for food donations…it’s on the floor of the aisle you walk down after you’ve exited the cashier stations…so if you are at the store and feel like picking up a few staples, below is a good list. And even if you shop at another store, feel free to still drop them off at Albertsons or directly at Emergency Aid (which is in the old Water & Power Bldg. at 600 Nevada Hwy.).

Emergency Aid Top 10 Staples List

  1. Canned Chili
  2. Canned Tuna (packed in water)
  3. Cereal (of any kind)
  4. Peanut Butter
  5. Spaghetti Sauce
  6. Chef-Boy-Ardee products
  7. Jam or Jelly
  8. Pancake Mix and/or Syrup
  9. Cheese and/or Dairy Products (they seldom get donations of these items)
  10. Diapers and Paper Products (i.e. toilet paper)

Hope that helps — but of course, please feel free to shop “off the list”.  Let’s be honest — having something to eat at all is great – so anything you are of a mind or in a position to give is always appreciated.
