2020 Donation Drop Off Locations

by Karen Fitzpatrick in Donations

Please note:
The pandemic has made things a bit more challenging this year. Trinity Lutheran Church had to delay their start date, and Nativity Lutheran Church will not be participating this year. Finding new recipients to replace some of the organizations that are still not accepting donations took some time. Over the past few weeks, we have added a number of drop off locations and recipients in both Lehigh and Northampton Counties.
Please remember to check the information below to be sure that the dates and times have not changed for your regular drop off locations. You might also find that we have added a location that is more convenient for you.

We will continue to post updates as we receive them.

Thank you for all you do to help provide fresh produce and herbs to families in need.
