Porchtown's Pantry Helps Neighbors Enjoy Thanksgiving

posted Nov 24, 2014, 11:33 AM by E Oz

"Porchtown Zion United Methodist Church was very pleased to help 35 local families enjoy bountiful Thanksgiving meals recently with distribution of non-perishable holiday foods on Nov. 15 and frozen turkeys on Nov. 22. God's Glory Pantry and Thrift Center leaders Lisa and Joe Pantelione - with the help of volunteers - put together the generous contributions given by church members and friends. All monthly recipients also receive "Daily Bread" devotionals; free clothing, videos & books; plus private prayer time whenever they visit the pantry . "It is a wonderful feeling to help our neighbors in need. We couldn't do it without God's help and the generosity of our church family," explains Lisa.
