Emergency Pantry

FOCUS West Central PA’s emergency pantry contains many non-perishable food items, including various canned fruits and vegetables, cereals and milk, canned meats, soups, oatmeal, pasta, peanut butter and jelly, and rice. Access to the food pantry is available through referral by community pastors, case managers, or counselors.

 

With changes in food stamp laws, many more people in Beaver and Lawrence Counties will have less food this year. Our ministry assists in providing emergency food aid for individuals and families struggling to get by as a result of very real and difficult circumstances. Together, we can help our neighbors move from lives of dependency to self-sufficiency.

 

Any who are in need of emergency food can stop by the FOCUS West Central PA office during office hours.

CLOTHING AND HYGIENE

FOCUS West Central PA also offers clothing and hygiene items to any who need them. We carry men’s, women’s, and children’s clothing in various sizes, as well as infant and newborn sizes. A multitude of hygiene items are also available, including soap, shampoo and conditioner, toothbrushes, and toothpaste.

Household items (e.g. bed sheets and pillow cases, pots and pans, blankets, diapers) are available, but in limited supply.
