Community Food Pantry
We’ve come a long way since the early days of our “food closet” and feeding a family here and there. Today the pantry feeds an average of 120 families each week. The Operation Hand Up Community Food Pantry is excited to announce our new building is up! With the help of our partnering church, Gosport United Methodist Church, we would like to say thank you to South Central Indiana REMC Operation Round-up, Owen County Community Foundation, Greencastle Wal-Mart and the many individuals who have helped this dream to become a reality. This new building will provide a designated area solely for meeting the needs of our communities. If you would like to contribute or are interested in more information regarding the pantry please feel free to call our Resource Department at 812-879-4369 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
With the new building complete and the new food pantry finished, we are getting closer to wrapping up the remodeling of our old facility. The remodeling project will include a much larger fellowship hall, restrooms, kitchen, numerous classrooms and an all new youth room which will include a café which we hope to open for after school events in the near future. The Lighthouse is known as a family church who places a large emphasis on youth ministries. This new facility will enable us to minister in more ways and much more effectively.
We are currently trying to raise money to rebuild Camp Beacon. As most of you already know we recently discovered that Camp had been robbed and vandalized. If you are interested in donating to the Fund in any way, please contact us here or call us @ 812.879-4369.
