Harriet's Food Pantry Ministry
CORONAVIRUS UPDATE: NORMAL SERVICE HOURS: Tuesdays 10 am-2 pm // Thursdays 12:30 pm-3:30 pm // 2nd & 4th Saturdays 9:00am-Noon (closed as noted until further notice.)
Due to CDC regulations, Harriets will be serving clients as drive-up service only with grab and go bags.
If you or someone you know that lives in our service area (see below) is in need please visit Harriet's at the times listed in bold above. Please bring a photo ID, a piece of mail to verify you live within our service area, and social security numbers for children. We do not provide financial support at Harriet's nor from the church office. Harriets is a food pantry that also provides small children's clothing and baby items to people who are in our area. We hope to be a Christ-centered "helping hand" to meet both the physical and spiritual needs of the people who live in our community.
FOR MEMBERS OF OUR CHURCH BODY LOOKING TO SUPPORT THE HARRIET'S MINISTRY:
Harriet's relies solely on donations. Current needs: One pound bags of oranges, rice, bags of potatoes, bags of apples, bags of onions, canned tuna and empty egg cartons. Bulk canned fruits and vegetables needed (numerous quantities of the same thing). Also: pasta, health products, cleaning products, and toilet paper. The $1 store, dollar general, and Walmart are great places to buy these items. Please bring one item per week to help meet the demand serving 50 families each week. If each member could bring 1-2 of these items each week, it would be greatly appreciated. Harriet's distributed approximately 150 hygiene items each week!! Need some ideas for hygiene items? Shampoo; Creme rinse; Men’s & women’s deodorant; toothpaste/brushes; razors; hand soap; bar soap; and toilet paper. Examples of Cleaning Products: dish liquid; comet cleanser; antibacterial spray; sponges; dryer sheets; laundry soap; and paper towels.
Donations are gratefully accepted in the church lobby on Sundays, then at the church office, Monday through Thursday 9:00am - 5:00pm. If you have any questions about donating, please call the church office at 727-799-4444. Until further notice, donations will be accepted at the church office in the bins outside. Please ONLY donate non-perishable food and toiletries. Do not donate clothing (except infant) or houseware items.
Children's clothes and shoes are always needed.
If the Holy Spirit has moved you for service in our church community, please consider volunteering at Harriet's on a regular or on an "as needed" basis.
