There are plenty of activities at St. Andrew's which serve our community. Here are some of them:

Pennsylvania Ave. Interfaith Food Pantry

 

The Pennsylvania Avenue Interfaith Food Pantry (PAIFP) at St. Andrew's serves approximately 40 families from our community.

 

It is open on the 1st and 3rd Wednesday evenings of the month from 6 PM until 8 PM - except for church holidays. Designed to supplement Bethlehem's West End Food Bank, we depend upon donations and volunteers to meet our goals.

 

St. Andrew's is joined by several other churches from our area to make this dream a reality. We welcome your participation and help.

A Warm Place To Stay - St. Andrew's Winter Emergency Shelter

 

Every year since 2009, St. Andrew's opened our church to serve as an overnight shelter for Bethlehem's homeless during the winter months.

 

St. Andrew's, along with 12 other churches provide shelter each winter to the local homeless. Friday nights is our night to house all of the local homeless men. We provide shelter, a place to sleep, dinner, breakfast on Saturday mornings, and companionship to this group of men

Victory House of Lehigh Valley

 

 

Victory House is a residential non-profit organization located in Bethlehem's South Side. Through its programs and support efforts, it helps homeless men return to productive lives in the community.

 

Our volunteers prepare and serve a home-cooked meal the first Saturday of every month at this shelter. We usually provide around twenty meals.

 

Contact Liza Holzinger to volunteer a dish or for more information. Food may also be prepared and frozen and placed in the freezer in the church's kitchen. Main dishes, cakes, pies, and cookies freeze well.  Remember to label the food with content and date.
