A Community TOGETHER Addressing Needs & Changing Lives!
Client-choice with a variety of fresh & nutritious food, dairy, produce, & meat for residents of the Conestoga Valley School District.
Client-choice with gently used clothing, shoes, & coats for residents of Lancaster County referred by an agency, church, or school.
Our youth ministries address childhood hunger, food insecurity, and provide mentoring to elementary students. We also distribute backpacks and school supplies to families in need.
We help hard working families & individuals impacted by an unavoidable financial hardship, including offering skills to improve financial literacy & self-sustainability.
Additionally, donations can be dropped off at our facility Tuesday-Thursday, 8:30am-3:30pm (no appointment necessary). Please do not leave donations on our dock or outside. We do not accept expired food and we only accept new or gently used clothing.
Charity is a virtue that is voluntary by definition. Effective charity builds bonds between the giver and the recipient that are beneficial for both. While there are many legitimate uses of tax dollars, their redistribution will never constitute charity.
If charity doesn’t empower the poor, it misses the mark. Empowerment is impossible without some aspect of challenge to help a person become self-sufficient.
Real charity delivers real results. The best programs operate from evidence and measure their impact rather than just the quantity of things they give away.
