Mobile Pantry for Subsidized Senior/Disabled Apartments

Starting May 7th and scheduled at several subsidized senior/disabled apartment units the first three Fridays of the month — a Mobile Pantry! Feel free to check with your apartment manager to see if you are a scheduled location, or to encourage them to call us if you are not. The office number is 920-684-7117.

The pantry in Manitowoc is continuing to operate by appointment. We ask that clients call the OFFICE 920-684-7117 after 9 AM to schedule a same day, possibly next day, appointment.

The pantry is typically open 1-4:30 PM Monday and 9-12 & 1-4 PM Tuesday and Wednesday. If we do not have scheduled appointments through the end of the day we have closed early at times.

We also do accommodate the walk up client during open hours, at least the first time. We then encourage them to make an appointment for subsequent visits.

Clients are scheduled every 15 minutes. It is important to maintain social distancing for clients to schedule appointments and to arrive on time.

There is plenty of food! The TEFAP guidelines have also been relaxed for right now (see below chart). This means MANY more families qualify. Please use the pantry. We are here to help!

How Are Red Kettle Funds Used?

The Red Kettle Campaign, the oldest annual charitable fundraiser of its kind in the United States, helps raise money for those who need it most in communities nationwide – providing toys for kids, coats for the homeless, food for the hungry and countless social service programs year-round.
Read Captain McFee’s inspiring story here: His kettle idea launched a tradition that has spread not only throughout the United States, but all across the world. Kettles are now used in such distant lands as Korea, Japan, Chile and many European countries. Everywhere, public contributions to Salvation Army kettles enable the organization to continue its year-round efforts at helping those who would otherwise be forgotten.
2020 Salvation Army Christmas Toy Shop

2020 Salvation Army Christmas Toy Shop

salvation army CHRISTMAS TOY SHOP

Coat distribution has ended. However, we currently have 787 children signed up for the Christmas Toy Shop — and sign up is not finished yet! (This does not include the children signed up for the Adopt-a-Family portion of our Christmas programming.) We collect new toys for Christmas by private individuals dropping them off at our office, local companies/groups doing drives/collections/events, and through the Toys for Tots collection boxes that have now been placed around town. Can you help #RescueChristmas by donating new toys or making a monetary donation for the Toy Shop? Thank you in advance for loving on the kids this Christmas!

NOTE: Sign Up for Coats has Ended

  • Where: The Salvation Army — by phone 920-684-7117
  • When: September 14th to October 16th — 9 AM- 3 PM
  • Sign up will be done by phone this year
  • Emails will be needed to finalize the sign-up process

Coat Distribution will begin October 24th
*Must be pre-registered*

It is best to sign up early. First come clients and new clients receive consideration for “adoption”. Note that you may not be adopted two years in a row. New families will need to provide proof of address, proof of household income (must meet poverty guidelines) and proof that your children live with you. If you receive FoodShare, that current document works. Preferably via email or fax.

Clients who have participated in one or both of these programs before will need to initially call and register. They will then receive an email with the wish list attached and asked to fill it out (with detailed info) and return via email. Once we receive the wish list, they will receive a final email with the dates and times for their appointments to pick up coats and toys.


We realize that this could be cumbersome for some families. We also believe with the way so much of life has been happening the last many months that it should be a process most families can follow.


Please have a photo ID, proof of address, proof that your children live with you, and proof of household income (must be below TEFAP/poverty guidelines shown here:  If you receive Foodshare, please bring that current document.

Donations of NEW Coats Still Needed!


Donations of TOYS Still Needed!
