DSS food drive to benefit families impacted by COVID-19

food

Orange County DSS is collecting non-perishable food items at both locations to support those in the community impacted by COVID-19. Need has increased with kids being out of school and families losing income as businesses close or reduce hours.

Donations of food, money or gift cards can be made directly to DSS, which will remain open throughout the crisis to serve families in need.

Drop-off donations can be made at our two locations

Southern Human Services Center
2501 Homestead Rd
Chapel Hill, NC 27514

Orange County DSS
113 Mayo Street
Hillsborough, NC 27278

Make checks out to Orange County DSS with Food Drive in the memo line. Mailing address is Orange County DSS, PO Box 8181, Hillsborough, NC 27278.

Online donations can be made through the Community Giving Fund. From the drop-down menu, please select “School Supplies and Food Pantry Donations” to ensure the funds go to this campaign. All donations are tax deductible.

For more information about the Community Giving Fund, email donations@orangecountync.gov.
