The Food Bank offers boxes of  non-perishable items provided by the Southern Arizona Community Food Bank as well as additional items donated by church members and many other churches and organizations.  New Spirit is in partnership with ICS.  If you find yourself short some month, please stop in and we’d be happy to help you out. If you’re feeling especially blessed, please feel free to donate groceries of your own to the Food Bank.

Our Medical Loan Chest is a type of “lending library” which circulates everything from canes to walkers, wheelchairs to  shower chairs to bedside commodes, and more! Whenever the need arises for something in this area – and we have the particular item in stock – we’d be pleased to lend it to you free of charge. And, if you have a medical item you are no    longer using that someone else may find helpful, drop it by. We’ll clean it up and lend it out. This is what good neighbors are for – helping each other out!
