Give Financial Security
Monetary gifts can be made online, through the mail or in person.
Please click on the JustGive button on the right side of your screen. You may make a one-time gift or a recurring gift to help support our programs.
To make a gift through the mail, please make your check or money order payable to SRSH and mail to: P.O. Box 590, Pursglove, WV 26546. Please note that the forwarding order has expired on the old PO Box and we currently do not have a mailbox at our physical location.
Be sure to note if your gift is for a specific program (i.e. backpack program or food pantry).
Our administrative offices are open Monday through Friday (except for holidays) 8:30am until 4:30pm. We would be glad to talk with you, give you a tour of the facilities and answer any questions you may have.
Donations of Food
We are glad to accept your donations of food for distribution through our food pantry or backpack program. For guidelines on the types of items that are appropriate for the backpack program, please click here.
The food pantry is always in need items (see the critical list on the home page). It is important that when donating foods from your pantry at home that you check the expiration date; many of us have canned goods that are well past that date! We will accept any unopened items, but do ask that you consider making your food donation a nutritious one! Consider the following items:
- Peanut butter
- Instant oatmeal
- Low sodium canned soups
- Fresh, frozen or canned fruits and vegetables (fruits packed in light syrup or juice)
- Frozen or canned lean meats or poultry
- Tuna in water
- Whole grain breads and cereals
- Other low sodium and low sugar foods
- 1% or Skim milk
Other items that we are always running low on include:
- Pancake or baking mix
- Spaghetti sauce
- Rice or dried beans
- Personal hygiene items such as deodorant, shampoo and soap
- Household items such as detergents and cleaners
- Paper towels
- Adult incontinence supplies (i.e. Depends)
Our baby pantry runs entirely on donations. We accept new or gently used layette items up to size 5T and small accessories such as swings, pack 'n plays, bouncers, etc. We suggest that individuals with larger items to dontate should get in touch with St. Ursula's Food Pantry & Outreach's Gabriel Project at (304) 599-3822. Items that we are often in need of include:
- Diapers in sizes 2 - 6
- Diaper wipes

- Bathing needs (i.e. shampoos, soaps, lotion)
- Bottles (used or new)
- Other layette items are happily accepted
Give your time
Once a month SRSH receives food from the USDA and we need help from those who are able to unload food and carry it down to the food pantry! If you are physically able to carry at least 20 - 40 pounds of food at a time down a flight of stairs and have about two hours to spare, please give us a call.
The dates for USDA food deliveries are: August 29, Sept. 26, Oct. 31, Nov. 20 and Dec. 26. The truck arrives at SRSH around 11:00 AM and with the right amount of help we should finish about noon. If you have some time and muscle to spare, please get in touch with Erika Martin at (304) 599-5020.
See the volunteer opportunities listed on the Get Involved tab or call Erika Martin at (304) 599-5020 to discuss what options are available to you. We need your help to keep making a difference for our neighbors in need.
