Food and Supplies

Beacon Center is very fortunate to have the support of our community. It would be impossible for Beacon Center to provide necessary items for our clients without the tremendous generosity of our community. 


COVID-19 Updates:

Due to COVID-19, we are only able to accept food and cleaning products at Beacon Center. Other in-kind donations such as gently used clothing and househol​d items are still a need, but we ask you to take them to Community Corner (101 9th Ave SW Watertown, SD 57201. It shares the same parking lot as Peddlers Market), and gift them in Beacon Center's name. Our clients can go to Community Corner to get the items they are in need of. Thank you for understanding during these difficult times.

If you have furniture or large household items, please call 605-886-4304. We may have a clients requesting such gifts.
