Needs List

Three Grains of Rice Missions relies on cash and in-kind donations for our outreach activities, events and projects through the Aurora and Compass programs .  For those who are not able to physically volunteer, you can still support these programs and make a difference in your community!  While we generally accept gently used donations, there are times when we need unused items.  We will indicate on each Needs List what we are able to accept.  When donating keep in mind that the key to making a positive impact on those we serve is to do so with dignity.

  • If you would like to make a cash donation please use the Donate button.  You can designate in the comments if you want the funds applied to a specific outreach.
  • If you would like to make an in-kind donation please email us at to arrange a donation drop-off or pick-up.
