Salem St Paul's Lutheran Church

The shelves at the local food pantry, PVEN, are bare and nonperishable food is needed. Put it in the barrel by the church office.

Clothing is also needed for PVEN, including infant and toddler snowsuits and winter coats, men's winter coats, boys clothes (especially jeans) size 4-18, men's sweat pants (all sizes) and T-shirts XL and XXL. Bring items to church and place by the food barrel.

Volunteers are needed to drive cancer patients to treatment through the Road to Recovery program, Monday-Friday, mornings and afternoons. All that is required is a good driving record, some free time, and the desire to help cancer patients in Monroe County. Drivers may use their own vehicle or one of two society vans. Training is provided. Contact Jennifer Washney at 570-562-9749 extension 320 or
