Yes, we need your help!

We would like to thank you in advance for your donated monetary gifts, items needed for survival and your volunteer time! We welcome donations of all types of things that can be useful such as clothing, blankets, toiletries. We are a 501c3 non-profit organization that is not supported by any government agency. We are funded solely by the good will of the community and every dollar we take in goes back to the community by helping the less fortunate. Please consider making a monetary donation to our organization or consider our organization for a tithe from your church.

Send checks or money orders to:
Care of Poor People
126 Lilly Lane
Clever, MO 65631

We ask that only gently used clothing items be donated and that nothing made of glass or anything containing sharp or unsafe edges be donated. We can not use these items and they create a health hazard during the sorting process.

We need donations of gently used warm clothing, coats, blankets, bedding, towels, diapers, shoes, new underwear and socks, luggage, long johns and toiletries, for this event.

Please contact Keith or Dawn any of our other board members if you have any questions about donations.

Food Donations

We need food of all types – meats, casseroles, side dishes, salads – and we need A LOT of it!! You can bring down hot or cold items on Saturday from 8:00am until noon. We can reheat food at the event if we need to but can not refrigerate anything.

Donation Drives

If you know of any groups that would like to do like a battle of the bands to raise funds for our event; or a theater that might have a special showing of a film to raise funds for our org. Please let us know. If they need any flyers or other materials from us just let us know by calling Keith L Tripp at 417-461-4372.

We are looking for groups in our community to do donatkion drives for us to collect items that would help save lives this winter. This would be a good opportunity for Churches, schools or businesses within the community. Some ideas for donation drives are:

Coats, diapers and other baby items, hygiene materials, gloves & Socks, Blankets, long john underwear, shoes and toys.
