Our mission is to ease stress, reduce hunger and improve the quality of life for our neighbors in need. The Falmouth Service Center (FSC) works to increase self-sufficiency by helping to build networks among clients, neighbors and agencies.
Toy donations for all ages are needed now for our holiday toy program. If you wish to donate but have questions about what we need, please click here. Thanks in advance for your help and for passing this information along to others! We are accepting brand new toys until Wednesday, December 11th.
As we prepare our warehouse for our holiday toy distribution, we unfortunately cannot accept any clothes or household goods at this time. We ask that you could hold onto those items until January 2nd. We would love have your winter clothing in good condition at that time as we will definitely have the need for warm winter coats and sweaters at that time!

We’re Here to Help
There are people in Falmouth who cannot always afford to buy food, or to heat their home during the winter. There are people who live for days or weeks at a time with no electricity because they've fallen behind on their bills.
- The cafeteria worker at your child's school who is a single parent
- The checkers and baggers at your local grocery and retail store
- The teacher assistant in your child's day care center
- Your neighbor down the street who has been laid off and is having trouble meeting his/her mortgage payment
- The elderly woman/man on a fixed income who lives across the street
- Your next door neighbor whose husband left her with three small children
- The families who have chronically ill children, or are themselves struggling with incapacitating illness
- The man or woman who drives your child's school bus
You or someone you love may have the need for assistance within the year. You can never know what will happen, but it's good to know we're here to help.
With over 400 volunteers, the campus is truly a place
where Falmouth residents can be of service, and in turn,
can come if they are in need of service.
