The New Love Center continues giving

JERSEY SHORE — The New Love Center in Jersey Shore continues to be a place where people in need of food and fellowship gather. And none of it would be possible without the help of 213 volunteers who donated 833 hours recently.

In January, the center served 990 people of all ages from both Clinton and Lycoming counties, and 99 senior boxes were distributed. Lycoming County saw an increase in new clients of 32 people, and 11 new households were added for a total of 422 households being served in the area.

Multiple stores, churches and organizations helped by donating food and other items, including:

r Weis Markets which donated 648 pounds of meats.

r Lingle’s Market which donated 319 pounds of meats and other items.

r Churches, other organizations and individuals who donated 670 pounds of items.

In the upcoming months the center will be in need of certain items and is asking for specific donations, including boxed chicken noodle soup this month; egg noodles in one-pound bags in March; one-pound bags of rice in April and 16-ounce jars of peanut butter in May. The items may be dropped off at the center, in St. John Lutheran Church, Jersey Shore.
