Hands From The Heart Home Healthcare Services, through its employees and staff, partners with other community based organizations during the holidays, as well as throughout the year, to promote the delivery of essential services to seniors and their families. To this end, we were blessed over the past few years to support the work of several food pantries, including The Lord’s Pantry of Downingtown. The Lord’s Pantry has a simple mission statement: “No one should suffer from hunger.” We agree.
This past Saturday, November 23rd, Hands From The Heart’s community service committee – Hands of Hope – traveled to Downingtown to help with the Pantry’s annual Thanksgiving food distribution. Our volunteers helped pack baskets filled with donated goods for Thanksgiving to families in the Chester County area. Seniors and homebound residents in need will have their Thanksgiving baskets delivered to their home. Hundreds of other community members came to Downingtown West High School to pick up their baskets, which included turkey, stuffing, vegetables and much more! It was a wonderful day filled with the opportunity to meet new friends and connect with old ones through the joy of service!
The Lord’s Pantry of Downingtown has been in operation for over 40 years and is a non-profit, 501 (c)(3) organization. Since its inception, The Lord’s Pantry has been 100% volunteer-run. If you live in the Downingtown area and are in need of food, hygiene products, and/or other essential goods, you can visit the Lord’s Pantry online at www.lordspantryofdowningtown.org.
Hands From The Heart is proud to support the Lord’s Pantry’s mission to provide supplemental food assistance to eligible, low-income individuals and families in need based on the belief that no one should suffer from hunger.
