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. “We continue to be a force in the area of food insecurity, this new food hub will help us continue that mission”, according to the Center’s Alice Fox Cline. “Financial donations remain the cornerstone of our operation. We also need food donations and volunteers but it all works in tandem with financial gifts. Every little bit helps”.

The New Love Center unquestionably has risen to the challenge of the COVID 19 epidemic, but even before this unprecedented year of need, 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 3200 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 3400 volunteer hours it is clear that volunteerism is a critical component of the mission of the New Love Center.

The New Love Center is a charitable non-profit organization that distributes food and meals to help reduce hunger in Lycoming and Clinton Counties. The phrase “Where the love of Christ provides for all”, embodies a faith based approach to helping those in need.
