23057340-urgent-grunge-round-red-stamp-Stock-Photo-urgentWe were recently blessed with quite a large donation of coffee and creamery items.  We have always asked our volunteer churches and/or organizations to bring in these items as an additional gift when serving luncheon meals to our Sojourners.  We use these items in very large quantities in a week’s time and are usually in constant need.

We are now in URGENT need for the following item to temporarily be brought in instead.

We are in need of large or medium sized, clear plastic serving gloves.


Please do not bring any latex or powdered gloves.

We are also in the need of the following items:

Butter, garlic powder, onion powder, spray PAM, small foam plates, plastic flatware, large coffee filters, cleaning products, med & large trash bags, snack & quart size sandwich bags.

If you would be able to help, please contact Pastor Velinda Smith at 570-971-7117 or 570-323-1797.  Thank you!

We are so appreciative of all of the churches and organizations that have continued to  volunteer their services to us by serving a luncheon meal for our sojourners.  May God continue to bless you, as you provide such a blessing to us.  Please continue to remember us in your mission projects and your prayers.  We could not do what we do for the community without your continued financial and volunteering support.
