Ways to Support

It's easy to Donate Online

We depend on you and your generosity! Charitable Union has supported our local community since 1887. Contributions received from all sources are fully returned to our local economy -- nothing we receive filters away to state- or federal-level umbrella organizations. We stand alone, with your financial support. And your donation is tax-deductible.

Here's how your funds will be used....

  • Provide support for our annual operations
  • Increase funding to purchase essential items that are needed but not donated
  • Expand client store shopping hours to accommodate working families
  • Implement an outreach program to assist rural and home-bound clients who need our services
