FOCUS West Central PA’s emergency pantry contains a multitude of 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 (up to 3 days) for individuals and families who are 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.
FOCUS West Central PA also offers clothing and hygiene items to any who are in need of 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.
If you would like to donate food, clothing, or household and hygiene items to our office, you can call us at (724) 494-8441, or bring your donations straight to the FOCUS West Central PA office. Our office is located at 1501 Eighth Avenue, Beaver Falls, PA 15010. See our map for directions.
