Ways to Give

Last fiscal year, SCA has helped over 4,000 families. With your help and contribution, we can continue giving meaningful and purposeful programs to those who need it the most.


Why should I give?

Since SCA is a 501(c)(3) private, non-profit corporation, we rely on the generous support of individuals, corporations, foundations, and others in order to serve those in need in Schuylkill County.

Contributions can be financial or in the form of in-kind goods or services. All contributions to SCA are eligible for Federal Income tax deductions. Special tax credits are also available for certain types of corporate gifts.

Donate through Schuylkill Gives

Schuylkill Gives is a 24-hour donation drive dedicated to supporting nonprofits in Schuylkill County. While the 2024 Schuylkill Gives event has concluded, you can still contribute to our ongoing mission of ensuring that Schuylkill County stays fed.

Your donation directly funds food truck operations and delivery fees, ensuring nutritious food reaches every corner of our community.

With your support, we can make more deliveries, meet growing needs, and empower families for brighter futures. Together, let’s make a difference in Schuylkill County’s fight against hunger.
