Local Opportunities to Help Those in Need

Betty Lou's Pantry, our local food pantry serving the Southern Lehigh area, is very low on certain items due to the cancellation of the annual post office food drive as well as multiple small collections that were done by local businesses, sports teams, schools and more.  You can help in the following ways:

1.) All are invited to bring food donations to the pantry on Sunday, August 16 between 10:00am and 1:00pm located at the pantry, 333 East Oxford Street in Coopersburg. Please remain in your car, drive up around the perimeter of the parking lot and stop at the tents outside the pantry. Volunteers will take bags from your trunk or back seat to minimize contact. Thank you in advance for your generosity and support.

2.) Four food donation drop off sites: Coopersburg and Center Valley U.S. Post Offices, Southern Lehigh Public Library, all during their business hours. Betty Lou's Pantry is open to drop off donations, every Wednesday, 9-10 AM.   

At this time, the pantry is most in need of the following items:

·         Hearty Soups with Meat

·         Boxed Pasta (not spaghetti)

·         Boxed Potatoes

·         Canned Pasta in Sauce (Chef Boy-R-Dee Ravioli type items)

·         Meat Helpers (Chicken, Meat and Tuna Helper)

 

Thank you for helping our friends in need!

The Catholic Charities Ecumenical Kitchen, 179 West Chew Street in Allentown, has been operating as a food pantry, distributing 200-250 boxes of food to families each week. Many  individuals who do not have houses walk in for ready to eat "to go" boxes. 
 
Supply continues to be a concern, as we are combining food drives with monetary donations to purchase food from Second Harvest Food Bank.  The Tucker Silk Mill in Easton, Bimbo Bakeries, Amish farmers and many local businesses assist by providing fresh milk and eggs, fruits, and pasta,cereals and other nutritious foods.   
 

You can donate online at www.Catholiccharitiesad.org/donate, making sure to designate your donation to “179 W.Chew Street Ecumenical Kitchen/ food purchase”. Checks may be made payable to “Catholic Charities”, with memo line note “179 W.Chew Street Ecumenical Kitchen/ food purchases,” and mail to Catholic Charities at 900 S. Woodward St. Allentown 18103.

 

Thank you for your support!   

Hello from the Community Outreach Benefit 2020 Team! Once again this year we are helping 4 families who are suffering financially due to serious medical issues. In January, before the current COVID situation was public knowledge, the Team decided this was going to be our last year of the COB mission. We also decided that it was going to be strictly a plea for monetary donations which in hindsight was a good call since we would not have been able to do any fundraising events. Also, we are in sight of hitting the million dollar fundraising goal for our 19 years of being in existence which we would like to attain and celebrate as well!
Please, if you have participated in helping COB in any way over the years, as we know so many of you generously have (volunteering at our block parties, buying and selling raffle tickets, participating in our restaurant fundraisers, 5K, golf events, donating raffle items and so many more ways) we hope that you will consider a monetary donation to COB. Go to www.cobcares.org to donate on-line or send a check to St. John's UCC, 538 E. Thomas St., Coopersburg Attn: COB. We and all of the COB recipients both past and present thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your help, support and kindness.
Sincerely, The COB Team

Because We Are Catholic

Appeal

Our parish has a deep history of generosity in support of the Bishop's Annual Appeal, renamed to reflect the nature of the Diocesan-wide appeal. A volunteer Trust Advisory Board ensures donations directly support critical support services for children, families, friends and neighbors in the five counties served by our diocese. Please take a few moments to read the letter and brochure you should have received from our Bishop, Alfred A. Schlert. Your gift directly supports community services, education, senior care, parish life, and much more. 

 

You can find more information and make your gift online at www.BecauseWeAreCatholic.org.

 

If you prefer donating by check, please make payable to "Annual Appeal"and mail to the diocese:

Because We Are Catholic Annual Appeal Office

Diocese of Allentown

Post Office Box F

Allentown, Pennsylvania 18105-1538

 

Be sure to stipulate St.Joseph Church, Coopersburg, parishioner, in memo line. Please do not send the donations to our Rectory.
