Donations

The PLU Pantry is stocked through a partnership with Northwest Harvest and the Emergency Food Network (EFN). We thank them for their support of our PLU family.

Due to current COVID-19 restrictions, we have suspended the collection of “in person” donations for food items and hygiene products. If you want to support our pantry efforts, your monetary donation of any amount is most appreciated.
