The Shepherd House Food Pantry at Ebenezer E. C. Church, Centre Ave., serves 100 families each month and that number is growing due to the unemployment rate increase.
Volunteers are needed to help unload the food delivery truck and stock the shelves. Without the generous help of volunteers the pantry cannot provide this food assistance to the community.
If you are available to donate a few hours of your time the morning of Jan. 25, call (570) 325-2855.
The free community supper at St. Mark's Episcopal Church, Race St., will be held on Sunday, Jan. 22, from 4 to 6 p.m. The menu for this month is spaghetti and meatballs.
