#1  Make A Cash Donation


If you need volunteer hours for a school, university programs or scholarships ​Oldsmar Cares may be able to help. Volunteers are needed at the pantry to assist clients and process clothing and food donations during office hours. Tasks include greeting visitors, sorting, folding, and stocking. Training will be provided.  We also have volunteers who work in the ​following areas of need throughout the year. ​

​​If you are interested in volunteering please fill out our contact us form or contact JoAnn Fitzpatrick, volunteer coordinator at info@oldsmarcares.org or 727-458-4799.


We ask that all food donations be unopened and non-perishable. Food can be dropped off at seven (7) convenient locations in Oldsmar. You can also make a visit our virtual food drive to make a donation online.

​Helping your neighbors in need is easy. You just need to know where to start. Oldsmar Cares has four ways for you to make a difference in your community. 


Donations of new and gently used clothing and shoes for children and adults are always needed. We especially need children’s and teen sized clothes, and maternity clothes. Household items including children’s books, toys and stuffed animals and bikes.

Donations can be made at Oldsmar Cares, 163 State Road 580 West. Pickup of large donations may be arranged by contacting us or by calling 813-415-7373.

Any amount makes a huge impact because Oldsmar Cares is 100% volunteer run and the money you donate goes directly to those in need. Monetary donations can also be made online or by check mailed to: Oldsmar Cares P.O. Box 981, Oldsmar, FL 34677.​
