How you can help the E-town Food Bank

The Elizabethtown Food Bank, located to the rear of 222 S. Market St. on the ground floor, has put out the word that it is in desperate need of some hands-on assistance, particularly during the vacation months of the summer.
The Food Bank is a vital service in our community and to those who are experiencing rough times and need  assistance. Many times this assistance is just temporary until they are able to get back on their feet. Please consider assisting with this very worthwhile cause. 

Help is needed on the following dates:
  • Tuesday, July 10 (at least 1 person 
  • Wednesday, July 11 (at least 1 person) 
  • Tuesday, July 17 (at least 1 person) 
  • Wednesday, July 18 (at least 2 people) 
  • Tuesday, July 24 (at least 1 person) 
  • Wednesday, July 25 (at least 2 people) 
  • Tuesday, July 31 (at least 1 person) 
  • Wednesday, Aug. 1 (at least 1 person) 
On Tuesdays, volunteers meet at Darrenkamps at 1 p.m. It would be best if this volunteer had a vehicle that groceries could be loaded into. From Darrenkamps the volunteers will drive back to the food bank and restock the food bank with the food that was loaded into the vehicles. This will involve lifting and carrying of boxes of grocery items. You can expect to be there about 1½ hours. 

On Wednesdays, meet at the food bank by 9 a.m. to hand out food to those in need. It may require the food to be wheeled or carried to the person’s car. This shift lasts until 2:30 p.m. and can be split by two or more volunteers.

Please contact Arlene Ober at 367-2673 if you are available to help. 

The Food Bank is a ministry of the United Churches of the Elizabethtown Area.
