If you are interested in supporting our mission and continue helping us meet the needs of our community, there are several ways you can help:
AMAZON WISHLIST: We have compiled a list of pantry items and safety items we are in need of at our agency. Please view our list by clicking HERE.
MONETARY DONATIONS: Any monetary donation, large or small, will help us provide important programs and services throughout the duration of the pandemic to residents of the Marvine-Pembroke community and other Bethlehem neighborhoods.
FOOD DONATIONS: As we continue to operate our food pantry, we are always grateful for food and hygiene product donations. These items include nonperishable items such as carbs (pasta, rice, boxed/bagged mashed potatoes), canned vegetables, canned fruit, breakfast items (pancakes, oatmeal, cereal), meals-in-a-can (soup, ravioli, tuna), and hygiene products (toothpaste, shampoo, conditioner, body soap, hand soap, lotion, etc). Please call us if you are interested in donating so that we can schedule a drop-off/pick-up time that is most convenient for you.
