Reaching Our Community


In light of the Pandemic and all the challenges the Food Pantry families are facing, the Angel Tree gifts and Christmas Food Boxes were needed more than ever this year. Our congregation went above and beyond in their support of these ministries, providing the many items needed to fill 19 food boxes, in addition to giving generously for Angel Tree gifts and providing Story Book Bibles for the children of the Pantry clients. (Congregational Ministries also provided a much-appreciated gift card for each food box.)
Thank You to Our Many Pantry Helpers:
Katie (Montessori School), Anne, Jacqueline, Mary Mena, Ellie and Liam, Kristi, Denny,Terri,Beth, Martha, Kim, and the many anonymous shoppers who drop off food each week or financially support this ministry.
YPPC’s Pantry serves 20 families (70 people) each month plus 15 or more others, as needed. Your continued contributions and donations make this outreach to our community possible.
Other Mission and Outreach Activities:
A Christmas card was sent to Mission on the Move for Genesis, the young girl our church sponsors in Honduras. (If you would like to send a note or card to Genesis anytime, the mailing address is Mission on the Move, P.O. Box 1208, Savannah, GA 31416. (Please mark it FOR GENESIS.)
Christmas cards, signed from YPPC, were sent to 52 servicemen and servicewomen serving overseas.
Tins of Christmas cookies were delivered to our Meals on Wheels clients.
A $300 donation was made to Patriot Villas, a local organization that provides housing for homeless Veterans.
A $150 donation was made to Journey, the Presbyterian student organization at The Citadel.
Thanks to several anonymous donors in our church and community, we were able to help some of our pantry families during this difficult time with money for children’s clothing, a bed, mattress, bedding, and money for other needed expenses.
Other Ways We Can Help our Community
Aldersgate United Methodist Church is in need of gently-used men’s coats and new socks for their Winter Warming Shelter and Clothes Closet. If you can help, please bring any items to the church or leave a message for someone to pick up clothing at your home.
