Container Project

What We Do

The Container Project is a nonprofit organization founded to serve the community both locally and abroad by the distribution of non-perishable goods. The Container Project partners with other non-profits, churches, and volunteers in the Midwest.

Why We're Great

The heart of the mission is to receive discarded items of quality and new donated items that are appropriate for our clients, and to sort and deliver them to the point of need as an act of compassion and stewardship. We do not treat the poor poorly.

Why does your organization deserve community financial support?

We will donate our volunteer time, skills and energies, and ask donors to share with us in the basic costs of shipping, so that in partnership we work in solidarity with God's "least of these."
