On the third Wednesday evening of every month, members of First Church gather at Mission Central in Mechanicsburg to sort and bag donated groceries for local residents in need. The groceries are then transported to the Bethesda Mission shelter in Harrisburg.

Through Bethesda Mission’s outreach program, over 1,500 bags of food and essential items are distributed to hungry and needy individuals and families each month in the outlying areas surrounding Harrisburg.

Help is always needed! All are invited to join us.We meet again on Dec. 20 at 6:00 p.m.

Mission Central, a warehouse and affiliate of the Susquehanna Conference of The United Methodist Church, collects and distributes relief supplies and humanitarian aid locally, nationally and internationally as needed in response to natural disasters and other crises.
