APOYO Means support. Allied People Offering Year-Round Outreach has been operating on Central Washington University’s campus since 2001. We are an all-volunteer organization. All of our cash goes directly to the purchase of food and a few other essentials, such as diapers and toothpaste. Our board members are current or former CWU faculty, community activists, and leaders from the local mexicano community. Almost all of them are bilingual.

We provide ethnically sensitive food and support to a diverse population in our area. Everyone is welcome. We open twice a week, on Wednesdays and Saturdays, and we have no restrictions on the number of times clients can take food. We collect no personal data, and we do not turn anyone away. We can also deliver food in emergency situations.

We welcome donations of used clothing, appliances and household items, as well as some furniture, as space permits. All volunteers are welcome. We provide community service hours, and we can offer student internships by arrangement with professors. If you need help, if you have items to donate, if you need community service hours, or if you have students who might benefit from working with a nonprofit organization that serves our local community, please give us a call!  Find us on Facebook, or visit our web site!
