Where do you get the food and supplies from?
Our church family donates food items or give financially so that we can help our community. We are teamed up with FULFILL (Food Bank of Monmouth and Ocean County) where we can get food for free or for very discounted prices to be able to provide it to those in need. We also receive weekly bakery donations from the Acme in Tuckerton, fresh or frozen food from Walmart in LEH, and frozen meals from the Wawa on the corner of Frog Pond & Rt.539.
How can I help / donations?
For food donations, items must have legible valid expiration dates and can be donated when the Food Pantry is open, or before or after one of our services or events at the church. There are signs where items can be left in the main lobby.
Please DO NOT leave anything outside of our buildings.
For clothing donations, please help us out and pre-sort clothing prior to drop-off. Washed, new and in good condition clothing can be dropped off outside of room 014. All other clothing should be put in our donation bin located in the parking lot across the street from the Parkertown Firehouse.
Again, please DO NOT leave any donations outside of our buildings.
We also DO NOT accept used undergarments, toys, furniture, appliances, etc.
If you have any questions, please contact the church office.
