Help us feed the hungry.


University Community Social Services is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that depends on donations from people like you to continue our work. Despite our name, we are not affiliated with any university, nor are we affiliated with any religious organization. We are entirely volunteer-run, without a single employee, so 95 cents of every dollar you give goes towards providing meals and services to our guests. Please make your fully tax-deductible donation today.


As a reminder, many companies provide matching funds for charitable giving by their employees while others have programs that make contributions to charities with whom employees are involved. Please check with your employer.


$50 provides fresh fruit to 150 people.

$75 pays for a tray of meatloaf that feeds 75 people.

$100 buys fresh salad for 300 people.
$500 buys enough warm socks for us to give away this winter

$2,500 pays our rent for a month
