At the end of the year 2008, we realized a need for a Food Pantry that was open more than once a month and was not restrictive in any way. The congregation decided to open a pantry to help feed those in need with no regulations or paperwork.
The beginning of January 2009 started our mission and it has been growing ever since. Besides food for families, at the suggestion of one of our youth, we decided to provide food for dogs and cats too. We heard stories of people being forced to give up their pets because they couldn't afford to feed them.
To date, the vast majority of the food provided for the pantry has come from our congregation and friends of the church. We need business sponsors also in order to keep going. We currently feed between 20 and 40 Different families each week we are open. This is a massive undertaking for our little church, but God has provided through so many wonderful people, businesses and organizations.
The pantry is open every First and Third Tuesday of each month from 1:00 PM to 2:00 PM. People are also welcome during our worship service on Sunday's from 8:30 AM to 10:30 AM. Emergency requests are handled as needed by calling Pastor Art Yetter at (570) 698-5461.
Donations of any kind of food items, paper products, toiletries, cash, discount coupons, gift cards or anything else are needed. Your cash contribution will be used 100% to buy food and pet supplies. We will do the shopping for you. We will also arrange to have items picked up at your convenience.
Just call or email if you want to help us to help those in need in our community.
