Each month beginning in the fall we meet at 5:00 in the church parking lot and car pool to Philabundance in Philadelphia. Along with other volunteers, we sort, pack, etc., foodstuffs, or whatever they need done at that time. For more information or to sign up to join us, contact the church office.
Philabundance works in a variety of ways, through Food Acquisition, Direct Neighborhood Distribution Programs and Member Agencies. They rely strongly upon volunteers and donations. To learn more about Philabundance, visit www.philabundance.org.
