Where can I donate?

  • The best way to help is to make a monetary donation at www.delawarevalleyfoodpantry.com or www.fishermansmark.com/donations. These donations go towards gift cards to assist flood victim families. Alternatively, you can purchase gift cards to Uber, Lyft, Walmart, Kohl’s, Marshalls, or any grocery store and drop off at the above locations
  • Donations to support residents’ housing and other emergency needs can also be made to the City of Lambertville’s Emergency Fund, which is directed by Public Assistance Officer Bambi Kuhl, by mailing to or dropping off checks at Lambertville City Hall, 18 York Street, Lambertville, NJ 08530.


What if I prefer to donate items?

  • Most needed items at both pantries are personal hygiene products: soap, shampoo, toothpaste, toothbrushes, body wash, deodorant, etc. (Note: Cleaning products are no longer needed, as Lowes dropped off pallets of supplies.)
