The New Love Center continues to work every day to fight and end hunger as it exists in the regions it serves. With six active and regularly scheduled programs, each tailored to address a particular segment of the population, the Center donates 5263 pounds of food every month. This is especially relevant now as the COVID 19 pandemic reaches across the central / north central region of Pennsylvania.

The six programs which include: The Food Pantry, The Café, Military Shares, Elder Share, The PB&J Program and the backpack program, have been instrumental in helping those in need bridge the food gap that has become more prevalent and more disruptive to those in need. “While the New Love Center has been here working hard every day for the past 5 years, it is the past few weeks where we have truly been called to help our friends and neighbors.”, according to the Center’s Alice Fox. “We have seen a need at both of our locations the New Love Center Food Pantry on Broad Street and the New Love Café hot meals program at the Trinity United Methodist Church on Allegheny Street, both in Jersey Shore. The people of our region need our help, now, more than ever.”

The New Love Center unquestionably has risen to the challenge of the COVID 19 epidemic, but even before this unprecedented few weeks, the Center had served over 4,700 households in Clinton and Lycoming Counties. That means program totals of 875 people served each month by a yearly total of over 3,200 volunteer hours.

The New Love Center’s past and future success depends heavily upon monetary and food donations. As a nonprofit any donations can be made through their website thenewlovecenter.com. Funding is critical to fuel their far-reaching community efforts and those who can give and want to make a difference are encouraged to make a donation via the website. A second component is to donate time. Anyone over the age of 13 can volunteer and with a total of over 3,200 volunteer hours it is clear that volunteerism is a critical component of the mission of the New Love Center.

From New Love Center Vice President Dave Winkleman, “Now, more than ever, the mission of the New Love Center is needed. Having established ourselves as a critical link in the chain of community unity before the COVID 19 episodes we are prepared to face the future. In this great time of need, with the help, the love and the support of our community volunteers, the Center is well positioned to continue to provide these life enriching and lifesaving services well into and through this difficult time.”
