Donate

The Crimson Cupboard relies primarily on the generous support of others to keep our shelves stocked, whether it be monetary donations or donated items.

Now (and always!) accepting donations!

Monetary donations can be arranged by contacting cupboard@indiana.edu. We graciously accept cash and gift cards to local grocery stores. All donated funds and gift cards go to stocking the pantry with items that are not normally received via donation, such as milk, eggs, bread, and other perishable items. 

Nonperishable items can be donated at the pantry. Large donations should be made during our open hours, or at a time when a pantry staff member is available. Smaller donations can be left outside of the pantry or in the Campus View main office if the pantry is not open at the time of drop-off. Alternatively, donations can be picked up by a member of the pantry at a time and place convenient to you. Email us at cupboard@indiana.edu to coordinate a convenient pickup or drop-off time.
