We are collecting food for Hopewell Valley Mobile Food Pantry, a local food pantry, as part of our Local Love focus for next few months. Beginning Sunday, January 24 – February 21, we will be collecting food as well as accepting monetary donations to support the Pantry.
At the beginning of the COVID-19 lockdown in March 2020, Pennington Borough, Hopewell Borough, Hopewell Township, HVRSD and the Hopewell Valley YMCA created the Hopewell Valley Mobile Food Pantry to assist those that found themselves in need of a helping hand. And the work continues as people in our area are still struggling to make ends meet.
Specific foods items requested: Canned vegetables, fruits, meats, Breakfast cereals/bars, Shelf-stable milk, & Cooking oil.
Collection container: Bring your donations to the collection container on the front porch of the church. Monetary donations – you can send your donation by mail. Note on your check payable to HUMC how much you want designated to HVMFP. Online donations can be done by using the Donate Now page on our website and using the Outreach box!
Watch our future announcements for more details later re: the HUMC Youth Meet-Up Group fundraiser for Souper Bowl of Caring Sunday Feb 7 that will go to support HVMFP, too.
