"The Blessing Box"
Kirkpatrick Memorial Presbyterian Church has just installed a small food pantry. It is located halfway up the church's driveway. We invite anyone who is in need of food to help yourselves. If you are fortunate and aren't in need of food, feel free to help your neighbors. We encourage you to donate non-perishable food and/or toiletries. Toiletries, paper towels and toilet paper cannot be purchased with SNAP (food stamps).All items can be placed in the large container by the side door (opposite the food pantry)
We are calling our food pantry "The Blessing Box"
Thank you and be blessed!
Contactless pick up of Food Bags for those in need
Since they began in 2014, Kirkpatrick Church has filled 525 food baskets and bags at Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas for those in need in our community.
During the Pandemic they have discovered that there is an even bigger need in our area now. As a result, the church are going to start giving out bags of food on one Saturday per month in their parking lot starting on Saturday, 20th February, 11am-Noon. It will be contactless pickup; cars will pull in, pop their trunk and a bag will be loaded in for them. The bags will contain: Cereal, pancake mix, syrup, peanut butter, jelly, mac 'n' cheese, pasta & sauce, tuna, soup, toilet paper and paper towels. The church has been so fortunate to partner with several groups within the village; The Amwell Valley Fire Company Auxiliary, Athletes in Action and Boy Scout Troop 65. They have provided numerous food and personal items.
...And the donations keep coming in!
It is truly a community effort!
