Our Monthly Give

A generous person will prosper; whoever refreshes others will be refreshed. Proverbs 11:25 (NIV)

Just a block down Main Street in the basement of Zion Lutheran Church, Trinity disciples can demonstrate love, live our faith, and lead in our community by supporting the Hummelstown Food Pantry. This long-standing ministry serves the residents of Hummelstown who require assistance with their grocery needs. The pantry is sponsored and supported by the Hummelstown Ministerium and is directed, supervised and managed solely by volunteers from the Hummelstown area.

The Hummelstown Food Pantry also is a partner agency of the Central Pennsylvania Food Bank. Recent renovations allow the 80 -90 families that receive weekly support to be served more efficiently. Volunteers are always needed and can serve in a variety of capacities. From administrative work to lifting, sorting, packing, and operating the pantry during open hours on Wednesday and Thursdays, your help is always welcome. Stop in or call 717-566- 2589 and leave a message and someone will get back to you as soon as they can.

To help with food donations year-round, Trinity disciples can place items in the large plastic tote located just inside the parking lot entrance doors marked, “Food Bank Donations.” Monetary donations made to Trinity’s Monthly Mission Focus during the month of December will benefit the Hummelstown Food Pantry. Monetary donations are used by the ministry to purchase discounted food from the Pennsylvania Food Bank. Items that are purchased include dairy products and other perishables that help provide a well-balanced diet to those in need.

Your generosity helps change lives and provide hope to many in need. By doing this, we improve our community and make our town a better place for all to live.
