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. 


We are  happy to accept your gently-used donations of clothing, linens, strollers, luggage and kitchen wares. 

Please call for any donations of furniture or large home items as we are limited on storage. 


We cannot accept donations of the following used items: car safety seats, stuffed animals, magazines, or large electronics (such as computers and TVs). 


Your donations and monetary gifts can be dropped off at our at office Monday through Friday between the hours of 8 am – 8 pm, Saturday and Sunday 12 pm - 8 pm or call 605-886-4304 to make an appointment.


Thank you for making a difference in the lives of those who have experienced violence.

Made possible

The Food Pantry is stocked with donations from individuals and groups throughout the community and local food drives.  Without this help, our shelves would be bare.
