Who We Are
The primary purpose of the Yamhill Carlton Storehouse is to provide food for individuals and families in need. In addition, we may provide some personal items (tooth paste and tooth brushes, hand soap, shampoo, shave cream and razors, dish soap and kitchen towels). Furthermore, we try to keep on hand warm blankets and a sleeping bag at times. We may even have some pet food.
Thanks to our dedicated volunteers, we are able to serve low-income, senior, and disabled families throughout Yamhill Carlton community. Volunteering at Yamhill Carlton Storehouse can be personally satisfying as well as offer opportunities to gain new skills, to meet new people, and to help people in need.
Become a volunteer and make a difference in people’s lives. Contact Us if you are interested.
We provide free handmade quilts to local families and individuals.
