Call for Volunteers

We Need Your Help!

In March we distributed 245 bags through the Food Pantry, which provided food for 675 people.  We distributed 914 bags in April, serving 2356 people.

Would you be willing to conduct a food drive for Good News Outreach?  Our regular food supply can no longer meet the demand we are experiencing.  We are asking for pasta, peanut butter, rice and canned vegetables.  We want to continue to provide food to as many people as possible, but we need your help to make it happen.

We are also looking for box fans and can openers for some of our senior clients. If you can help, please drop the items off at 548 E Bradford Rd.  THANK YOU.   Together we can do amazing things to help others.
