The Blessings Shop
The “Blessings Shop” is open and donations are accepted when The Food Pantry is open (see schedule above). We accept new or nearly new items. People in the community are in need of clothes, household items, small appliances, books, toys and even decorative items. We are currently in need of children’s new socks, various sizes, and new towels.
We often take for granted how fortune we are. Let’s help others in our community who need our help by simply donating things that mean a lot to others.
For additional information or questions, please contact Bev Moyer.
The Snack Pack Program
There are at least 40 more families that could be included in this program.
We need funding from businesses, churches, individuals and other civic minded groups.
The labor to assemble these bags has been provided by volunteers from Rotary, the HS Interact Club, and the pantry. Each bag costs approx. $5.00 for the included food items. This may well be the majority of food that child has until they return to school on Monday.
Please consider an ongoing monetary donation—or—a one-time donation would also be appreciated.
PLEASE NOTE ON YOUR CHECK: “SNACK PACK PROGRAM” and your donation, of any amount, will go into a separate account at the food pantry for this vital program.
If you, or any corporate sponsors have any questions,please contact the Food Pantry at 610-674-2440 or Gloria Zimmerman of Rotary at 610-395-0763.
