We have created a new appointment system for those who want to shop at the CARE Center to create a better pantry experience. Guests can use this link to make an appointment: CARE Center Shopping Trip. You will receive a confirmation email once you create your appointment, please show our front desk volunteer your email confirmation, fill out your intake form, and enjoy shopping for your items! While appointments are suggested for those who would prefer earlier times, the Kangaroo Pantry is still available for walk-in appointments when no appointments have been made
