THE LITITZ WARWICK COMMUNITY CHEST (food bank), is currently seeking volunteers to make food deliveries. This position involves assembling the food delivery from the pantry and local grocery stores and delivering the food to the requesting family's home. A time commitment of 6 hours a month should be expected as typically 2 to 3 deliveries are made per month with each delivery taking approximately 2 hours. There are physical demands required as the food must be carried up the steps which access the pantry. If you are interested in volunteering, call our hotline at 627-0770 and leave a message. We will return your call to explain in detail and answer any questions.

SUPPER CLUB SIGN UP FOR 2015: Supper Club is a group couples/singles who meet for dinners and socializing throughout the year. Groups of 4 couples/singles will be formed from those who sign up. Your group will then meet 4 times during the year, once at each of the couples/singles home for dinner and socializing. Each group can decide how to organize the dinners for their group. This is a GREAT way to socialize and get to know others here at St. Paul! Look for the signup sheet in the Sign-Up book in the narthex. Please sign up by Sunday December 14th. We really would like to get more younger couples involved in Supper Club. This is a great way to get a night out with adults. If you are a couple in need of babysitting, please indicate when you sign up. We can find some of the youth wanting to babysit to help you, so you can attend a supper club dinner. After December 14th, we will randomly select the groups, and inform each couple/single of your group so you can get started. Any questions, please contact, Deb or Al Rothermel (627-2107 or firstname.lastname@example.org)
