In the last several months, our afternoon snack program has almost doubled.  Praise the Lord.  We are in desperate need of quart size bags for the healthy snacks that we give to the children after school.  They can be any kind, or brand.  Thanks to all for your continued support and help.

We are asking all churches/ donators to please update your contact information, address information,  and email information. 

We recently had some important “Thank You” letters returned to us as UN-deliverable.  We want to make sure everyone knows how blessed we are by your gifts, donations, and willingness to serve our ministry and mission, so it is important that we have your current information on file.


If you could please email Derecia Kelly
         or call her at either:
(570) 419-1451 or (570) 323-1797

May God continue to bless you for your continued support of our Ministry/Mission.

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.
