Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
Since the Northeastern Food Pantry is unable to accept our donations at this time due to the pandemic, we have decided to donate items to Bell Socialization Services until further notice.
Bell Socialization Services, located at 160 S.

Please leave your donations in the narthex. The list of items will be changed from time to time as was the case with our food donations, so please check your email for any updates.
Thank you so much!
