Congregations come together for holiday giving

Dec 18, 2019 | Foodbank Blog

The congregation at Newfield United Methodist Church donated $3,341!

The congregation at Grace United Methodist Church in Corning donated $3,023!

Members of two local churches recently dropped by to deliver donations collected by congregations headed by Pastor Mike Kelly. 

Congregants of Newfield United Methodist Church and Corning Grace Methodist Church donated enough to provide more than 19,000 meals for our neighbors in need. 

Pastor Mike and his churches are long-standing supporters of the Food Bank. Church members raise money in a variety of ways throughout the year, from hosting pancake breakfasts and spaghetti dinners to generating support from local businesses. 

With the Newfield church as a partner food pantry, Pastor Mike and the many members of the congregations have become personally invested in the issue of food insecurity in their communities. We are so thankful for their commitment to helping build and sustain hunger-free communities in the Southern Tier!
