Pennsylvania Ave. Interfaith Food Pantry

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

 

The food pantry is open on the first and third Wednesdays of the month from 6 PM-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.

 

Volunteers are needed on the first and third Thursday of each month for the Second Harvest food delivery. Join us at 8 AM to help.

 

Volunteers are needed on St. Andrew's turn to host the distibution on 

March 7, May 2, July 11, and November 7.

Bethlehem Winter Emergency Shelter

Every year since 2009, St. Andrew's opens our church to serve as an overnight shelter for Bethlehem's homeless from the beginning of December to the end of March.

 

St. Andrew's, along with 12 other churches provide shelter each winter to the homeless. Friday nights is our night to provide shelter, a place to sleep, dinner, breakfast , and companionship to or guests.

 

Beginning in December 2017, the shelter for men and women was moved to a single location, United Church of Christ at Market and Center streets. St. Andrew's is responsible for the first and third Friday nights and Saturday mornings. We provide a meal, overnight presence, and a light breakfast for approximately 70 guests.

Victory House of Lehigh Valley

Victory House is a residential non-profit organization located on the south side of Bethlehem. Through its programs and support efforts, it helps homeless men, many of them veterans, 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 serve around twenty men.

 

Contact Liza Holzinger to volunteer a meal or for more information.
