Wish List

Project Wish List genericThank you for your interest in making a donation to the Camden County Family and Community Services Center. Our center in Camden county is a little different from our other centers because it does not operate a food pantry or thrift store. Our Camden office is home, however, to several of our diocesan-wide programs and is a convenient site to donate to some of these programs. Their wish lists can be found below.

The families we serve through our Camden County Family and Community Services Center are very low income and are often living from paycheck to paycheck. Our biggest need for these families are food and gas gift cards.

Thank you for your care and generosity!
