The Episcopal Church of the Holy Spirit is getting ready to open its food pantry to shoppers this Saturday, July 25, and it is hoping that the public can donate a few more supplies. The church posted yesterday on social media that it needs more bar soap, toothpaste, shampoo, cookies, crackers and tuna.
If you have supplies to donate, you can leave them in the bin by the side door of the church, which is located on Gould Street opposite the field at H.B. Whitehorne Middle School.
Holy Spirit’s pantry will be open on Saturday from 9 to 11 a.m. Shoppers must remain in their cars, and church volunteers wearing masks will hand out bags of groceries.
The Food Pantry is open from 9 to 11 a.m. on the fourth Saturday of every month, and anyone in need is welcome. If you need assistance in an emergency, before this date, please contact the church office at [email protected] or leave a voicemail at (973) 239-2850 to make arrangements.
The church also accepts financial support from the community for the pantry, which helps it to purchase low inventory items and provide gift cards to shoppers. Your financial donation is tax deductible. You may mail a check to the church at 36 Gould Street, Verona, NJ 07044 (put “Food Pantry” in the memo) or donate online.
