"Pay it Forward Little Pantry


The "Pay it Forward Little Pantry" is located on the front porch of our Chapel at 291 Main Street (next to the Old Presbyterian Burial Ground cemetery).

The concept is simple: take what you need, leave what you can. The good news is, this is open 24 hours a day, and is open to all. We're operating on the honor system: please take only what you need. Spread the word-we are so glad to be able to help others in these challenging times!


We are HAPPY TO ACCEPT DONATIONS of:

CANNED FOODS

UNOPENED BOXED FOODS

PERSONAL CARE ITEMS (shampoo, soap, deodorants, toothpaste)


We CANNOT ACCEPT DONATIONS of:

GLASS CONTAINERS

HOMEMADE FOODS and /or

HOMEMADE BAKED GOODS (casseroles, stews, dinners, cakes & pies)

OPENED CONTAINERS OF FOOD

FOODS THAT REQUIRE REFRIGERATION

(They will be discarded if left here, thank you for understanding).


Our "Pay it Forward Little Pantry" has had some changes and additions!  There are now 3 cabinets, all with doors on them, and one is dedicated to personal care / hygiene items.  There is also a galvanized can that is dedicated for pet foods.

All Are Welcome


Micah 6: 6-8  "...what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness and to walk humbly with your God?'

 

Wonderfully created, redeemed, and sustained by God's love, we are freed to love ourselves and one another.  In our corporate worship we ask for God's forgiveness, gratefully receive God's grace, and listen for God's truth in the words of the Scripture and sermon.  Fed by the Word and inspired by the Spirit, we joyfully respond to God's love through the offerings of our means and our selves.

 

The First Presbyterian Church of Hackettstown, NJ is a Christian Church and a member of the Presbyterian Church USA.


Join us for worship this weekend!
