Make a Difference

If the Helping Hands Pantry has helped you, your family or friends, and you believe as we do that the HHP is supporting hungry families in Machesney Park and Loves Park, providing a donation will help HHP continue serving into the future!

We offer several different ways to give: you can consider giving through a monetary donation, hosting a food drive, utilizing AmazonSmile and supporting us on social media to help spread the word that HHP is committed to ensuring no family goes hungry.

Helping Hands is an approved recipient for Thrivent Choice Dollars, Schwab and Fidelity Donor-Advised Funds.


Your donation is 100% tax deductible, and any amount helps!

Amazon Smile

AmazonSmile is a simple way for you to support your favorite charitable organization every time you shop, at no cost to you.

On your first visit to, you need to select a charitable organization to receive donations from eligible purchases before you begin shopping. Amazon will remember your selection, and then every eligible purchase you make through AmazonSmile will result in a donation.

Food Drive

Looking to get your business or organization involved? Consider hosting a traditional, paper goods, bread and dairy and/or baby goods drive to help support the HHP Mission. Click here for more info.

Legacy Giving

Helping Hands Pantry welcomes planned or “Legacy” giving, which includes fixed payments, starting either when the gift is made (an immediate-payment gift annuity) or at a later date (a deferred or flexible gift annuity). Contact us to learn more about this giving option.
