We are incredibly blessed to see our Cameron Serve & Lift Center grow and be a resource, so those in our northern and rural neighborhoods can receive the help they need. On average, the Cameron Serve & Lift Center serves 120 families every month ranging from children to seniors.
Families may choose their own food from the available selection of non-perishable and perishable items. This client-choice model allows individuals to meet their own taste preferences, cultural dishes, and better manage chronic medical conditions that require a specific diet. This opportunity is transformative to our agency and those we serve in the northern portion of our 27 counties.
In addition to distributing food and hygiene to those in need, we now offer Happy Bottoms Diaper distribution through the Cameron location. Each month participants can go to their nearest distribution location and receive 50 diapers or 30 pull-ups once every month. We currently serve the Gallatin community the first Wednesday of the month and the Cameron community the second Wednesday of the month. Those in our St. Joseph community can regularly be served at our St. Jospeh Catholic Charites location. To view our food pantry and diaper distribution calendar, go to serveandliftcenter.org and click on Distribution Location Calendar.
We serve our neighbors with your help. Volunteers are necessary to make the Serve & Lift pantry operational and are always needed. Any amount of time you can offer makes a difference. We are looking for volunteers anytime Monday – Thursday between 8:30am – 5:30pm. Watch our video (scan the QR code) and email email@example.com to see how you can help.
