Donate Your Time

A rewarding experience

If you've never spent time helping others by "getting your hands dirty" making and serving meals, handing out clothing or ministering to the homeless and hurting population in Philadelphia and Southern New Jersey...well you're in for an uplifting experience. Robert Ingersoll so aptly stated: "We rise by lifting others." Join us, feel the rush of doing God's work by your hand. 

We meet the 1st, 2nd, and 4th Saturday morning at 8:30 at the New Covenant Presbyterian Church, in Mt. Laurel, N.J. (map on the contact page) to make sandwiches, prepare bags, sort and pack clothing. We leave around 10:15 to deliver the meals, clothing, blankets along with Bibles, Daily Breads, love, compassion, friendship, and prayers to our brothers and sisters in need. We usually return around 1pm.

We also serve the 2nd and 4th Sunday each month at the Sunday Breakfast Rescue Mission, 302 N. 13th St. in Philadelphia. We prepare, cook and serve a meal, and cleanup afterward. We're working on this outreach becoming each and every Sunday...stay tuned. Expect to be there from 10am to around 2pm

Send a quick email to feeding5000@comcast.net or use the form on the contact page to let us know when you're available and we'll respond with dates we have open for volunteers.

Food

Non-Perishables Please

As you can imagine, non-perishables work well for us as large scale refridgeration is not always immediately available to us. Individual donations or food drives orchestrated by you, your church or your workplace are wonderful instruments to collect volumes of non-perishable food items. You can drop items at New Covenant Presbyterian Church, 240 Creek Rd. Mt. Laurel, NJ 08054 by the side door near the trailer If possible, send an email to feeding5000@comcast.net or use the form on the contact page to schedule a drop or to let us know you've dropped something off.

Clothing

From Coats to Socks

Believe it or not socks are what we purchase to deliver than any other clothing item. You can never go wrong with socks. Individual donations or clothing drives orchestrated by you, your church or your workplace are wonderful instruments to collect volumes of clean, serviceable clothing. You can drop items at New Covenant Presbyterian Church, 240 Creek Rd. Mt. Laurel, NJ 08054 by the side door near the trailer If possible, send a quick email to feeding5000@comcast.net or use the form on the contact page to let us know you've dropped something off.

Donate Your Skills

Show us what you've got...

We're always looking for people to lend a hand, to inject new ideas and perspectives.

Everything from CPA assistance to marketing and communications. Volunteers move in and out of our lives as their focus on charitable work evolves. Some assume new tasks and other move on. It is a part of life. Most of our departments are led by one or a few people. Working by committee sustains a much more fruitful outcome.

Send a quick email to feeding5000@comcast.net and tell us how you can help. Perhaps you just want to make a few suggestions...we're always ready to listen!
