The Bethlehem Grange #137 is Continuing to host a Food Drive. If you or your group would like to donate any items, it would be greatly appreciated.
The original list came from passionatepennypincher.com and was on a schedule of Dec 1 to Dec. 24th – But, we are continuing our Food Collection due to the continuing need that still exists. The donated food & items will go to people who need it most – all of whom have been referred by a professional such as a social worker, health visitor or schools liaison officer or church. If you can deposit the items or boxes at the Bethlehem Grange 137, that would be fantastic. Please call Jackie Schrom at 518-810-6031 to arrange to drop off any items. We do not have a covered area that would be safe from the elements.
Some suggestions are: box of cereal, peanut butter, stuffing mix or biscuit mix, boxed potatoes, macaroni and cheese, canned fruit, canned tomatoes, canned meat –i.e. salmon, tuna, ham, stew, chicken, dessert mix i.e. cake, brownies, pudding, Jell-O, etc., jar of applesauce, canned potatoes, sweet or white, cranberry sauce, canned beans of any kind, box of crackers, box of rice, or rice mix, package of oatmeal, package of pasta, spaghetti sauce, soup of any kind, box of hot chocolate mix, jar of jelly, canned vegetables, spaghetti-o’s, ravioli etc., Helper meals i.e. Hamburger helper, chicken or tuna
In speaking to the food pantry if your group would rather do a supply box, those items are needed as well; Items such as deodorant, hand soap, shampoo, toothpaste, toothbrushes, cleaning supplies, toilet paper, paper towels, tissues, diapers. These items tend to be more costly though.
The food pantry also puts in each box, a gift card to a supermarket i.e. Price Chopper, Shop Rite and Hannaford – so if one gift card is more do-able that is great as well.
Of course if you are able to make a box of items, one per group, or one from all groups together – ANYTHING will be of help and appreciated.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Jackie Schrom as coordinator of this Community Service project for The Bethlehem Grange # 137, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 518-810-6031. Thank You in advance for your consideration of this outreach project.
