Care Package Food Ministry

20161015_100944We all know how tough things can be these days, if you add extra challenges, such as a job loss or health problems, life can be especially difficult. Members of Holy Cross Lutheran Church would like to help out in a small way by providing Care Packages of food and common household items to those in need in our community . If you are in any need, download an application form here or call 973-379-4525 to request one to be mailed to you. We hope to be able to serve you.

Please Consider Donating

ministry-carepackages2Anyone wishing to contribute food or shoprite gift cards for people in Springfield  can do so by dropping off food at the church 9AM-1PM Tuesday-Friday. Please call to arrange a drop off time so that someone is there to receive them outside of normal hours.   Helping out in this small way can make such a big difference in the lives of our neighbors.
