Reaching Our Community

Jesus said, "that the harvest is plentiful but the laborers are few. Pray that God would send out laborers." At Yeamans Park, we answer the Lord's call to be disciples for our community

FOOD PANTRY

                  July’s collection of canned meats was a big success. Thank you for all the cans of chicken, tuna, corned beef hash, salmon, Vienna sausages, and beef stew.      The August ITEM OF THE MONTH is a new one. For the first time, we’re asking for boxes of Instant Oatmeal packets, flavored or plain. In addition to stocking this item in the Food Pantry, we also use it in the food bags we pack for the Hanahan Police Department to distribute.

   The Food Pantry is open on Monday mornings from 10:00 a.m. – noon. In order to reach a larger number of clients, we would like to open an additional day, preferably in the late afternoon (5:00 – 7:00) when people are off work and more likely to have transportation. Jane Smith works the pantry every Monday without fail and is willing to do a second day, preferably a Wednesday. Since no one is in the Church Office at that time of day, we need a second person to volunteer for two hours. It could be a different person each week or perhaps someone would volunteer to help for a month. If you are interested, please see Jane.

PARTNERSHIP

 YPPC’s Food Pantry is the only one in the Hanahan area open to ALL residents. Thanks to donations from our congregation, the Troop 409 Scouting for Food Drive, the annual Soup-er Bowl of Caring Sunday, and the Scrap-bookers who use our Fellowship Hall, we are able to offer this service to our community once a week.

In an effort to further expand the reach of our pantry, YPPC has signed a Partnership Agreement with the Hanahan Police Department. As mentioned by Pastor Art on April 23, our police officers are often the First Responders to discover homes and apartments with no food present. Through this agreement, YPPC will provide bags of canned food to the Police Department to keep on hand for distribution when they discover a need.

YPPC is very grateful to Chief Turner and all Hanahan Police Officers for their willingness to partner with us on this initiative. This new relationship will greatly multiply our efforts to put food into the hands of local children and adults in need.
