Throughout the year, we focus on feeding the hungry and helping the homeless.
Aid For Friends provides prepared meals and visits to homebound elderly or disabled clients in the five counties around Philadelphia. ALC has been a longtime and important partner in these ministries that desperately need our help. Contact: Sheryl White
On September 10, we will prepare breakfast bags for Aid for Friends. Each Breakfast Bag will include a packet of instant oatmeal, a box of raisins, a packet of peanut butter crackers, a juice box, a packet of instant coffee or a tea bag, and a notecard. Donations are greatly appreciated and may be placed in the kitchen.
We also collect frozen meals for Aid for Friends. Currently, there is a great need for dinners and soups. Additional trays and containers are in boxes in the Narthex to fill and freeze at home and may be placed in the church freezer.
So far this year we have delivered 718 breakfast bags, 47 soups, 46 dinners and 2 containers of stuffing. Thank you for your ongoing support!
