Listening To You. Caring For You. Sharing With You.

Since 1989, The Father Fred Foundation has been providing food, clothing, household goods, and financial assistance to those with less within our five-county community. In the words of Father Fred, we are here to listencareshare, and above all, provide hope for those who find themselves in difficult times. Our goal is to ensure that no one in our community falls through the cracks - and we do all this without accepting any state or federal aid. To read more about The Father Fred Foundation, go to Who We Are.


Treating our neighbors with dignity and respect is the core of our existence. Father Fred used to say, “Look Good, Feel Good, Be Good.”  Words that echo in all that we do.

With that in mind, please help us to help our neighbors by donating those items that our neighbors need.
