Fill the Pantry

Help stock FedExFamilyHouse! We have common pantries that families share for meals and snacks. We love the pantries to be filled with food, snacks and beverages to make life away from home a little bit better. There's also a need for household items, including kitchen supplies, hygiene products, etc.

This page has a complete listing of items needed to serve families.  Many items go faster than others, so our needs change often. For our immediate, up-to-date Wish List, please email

Learn more about stocking the pantry, specific items needed and dropping off your donation.
