Hosting a Donation Drive: Things to Consider

  • Cats' Cupboard accepts unopened nonperishable food items, new, unopened hygiene products, and new or gently used and clean kitchen equipment.
  • Cats' Cupboard accepts new hats, gloves, and scarves during the cold months.
  • If you are considering hosting a donation drive please contact us so we give you and up-to-date list of our biggest needs. We would also be able to share social media marketing if given enough notice.
  • Small donations may be dropped off during hours of operation.
  • For larger donations, please schedule a donation delivery by emailing catscupboard@k-state.edu. It is helpful for us to have volunteers scheduled to sort large donations.
  • Remember bigger isn't always better.  Single serving items go a long way at the pantry.

We truly appreciate the campus and community helping keep our shelves stocked!
