Supply Donations

Since becoming a 501(c)(3) charitable organization in 2015, Cecil and Grace Bean’s Soup Kitchen has received its supply donations from individual donors and Costco.

Unfortunately, over the last few years, supply donations have declined. This year, we hope to restock our shelves by partnering with a few new organizations during the last part of 2024. With donations from outside sources, we plan to resupply hygiene products, clothing, and sleeping items to sustain us for at least six months so that we can continue serving low—and fixed-income people, the elderly, and those needing housing in our community.

Please check out our wishlist of items using this link:

We also accept a few food donations to supplement our Saturday and Sunday breakfast meals.

Please look at the list of needed items below and contact us to arrange a drop-off of your donations. Email us at We appreciate your consideration to partner with us in our ongoing work in Norristown!
