Serving One Another

There are many ways to serve one another during this time such as delivering food and medicine, providing tech support, and donating a tablet or computer to someone without one. Please sign up HERE or call the office. The Bridge Food Pantry in West Grove is offering food assistance and needs volunteers on Tuesday mornings from 9:00am – 11:30am to assist with preparing food boxes and unloading deliveries. Call 610-869-9500 with questions. Donations to the pantry can be made HERE (under “Add special instructions to the seller,” write “For The Bridge food pantry”) or by mailing a check made out to “Avon Grove Church of the Nazarene” with “The Bridge” in the memo line. Avon Grove Church of the Nazarene, 240 State Road, West Grove, PA 19390.
