How One Quiet Man's Efforts to Help Those in Need in Chester County Turned into a Loud Call to Action

We were very glad to have Senator Katie Muth volunteer at a recent distribution!  And so grateful for her support.  See what she said on her own Facebook page:

Thank you to a new sponsor to the Honey Brook Food Pantry!  We are honored to receive a generous donation from the folks at Chester County Solid Waste Authority.  Your donation during these cold and dark winter months is a much needed ray of sunshine!  We cannot express how much we appreciate it!

What an amazing way to begin the new year - another terrific (and large!) donation from the congregation at Saint Peter Catholic Church.  Thank you so much!  This will go a long way to start a successful 2020!

Despite the cold, wind, snow and 90 minutes without electricity, in our last distribution of 2019 we succeeded in making the holiday season a little bit brighter for hundreds of people.

We couldn't do it without you!  A heartfelt thank you goes out to....

Tel Hai Retirement Community -- For the collection of Hats/gloves/scarves

 

Mary Jane Brown and RV Industries--For the Stockings

 

St. Peter Catholic Church, Hopewell United Methodist Church, Westtown-East Goshen Regional Police Department--  For the coats

 

Thorndale-Downingtown Rotary, Suzanne Titus Interiors Inc,  Honey Brook Golf Club--For the toys

 

Central Presbyterian Church, Darlington-Rigg Group, Tel Hai, and East Brandywine Baptist Church-For the Turkey Distribution Food

Thank you!

Thank you so much to our recent donors!  The Honey Brook Women's Club, the Morling Family Charitable Foundation, Honey Brook Presbyterian Church, Central Presbyterian Church, and the Thorndale Rotary.  These local organizations are shining examples of the selflessness and goodwill in our community and we are so proud to recognize them!  These donations coming at a time of the year when folks are most in need.  Our November distributions have seen the largest attendance to date in 2019.  We cannot tell you thank you enough for your generosity.

A special shout out to the kids at Pope John Paul II Regional Catholic Elementary School for their donation of two VERY LARGE boxes of food!  The Student Council at PJPII organized this food drive during the month of November and very generously donated it to the Honey Brook Food Panty.  We are so grateful!!  Thanks to all the kids who contributed!

And a second special shout out to the kids  in Cub Scout Pack #9 - each year these hardworking young men go out into their community to collect food for the Pantry at this time of the year to help out with holiday meals.  This year they surpassed their previous collection and obtained 1,129 pounds of food!  What an amazing accomplishment!  Thank you to the Scouts!

The Knights of Columbus has been a long term supporter of our program and Tom continues to advocate for our mission throughout the community.

 

Many thanks to Tom and St. Peter Knights of Columbus!

Pantry News from the Board Chairman

As we conclude 2019 and reflect upon the impact of the Honey Brook Food Pantry, it is a perfect time to thank each and every one of you for the part you played in supporting our mission….serving local families in need while encouraging independence through programs including:

 

  • The weekend Kids’ Back Pack Program (94) through the local Elementary School serves those most in need  

  • Summer food boxes full of healthy items were provided to all participating children 

  • Healthy cooking demonstrations and ingredients are part of every distribution by our “Taste It” Team 

  • The “Garden for Life” program has expanded to over 50 families including 25 children and a Community Garden was added this year.

  • The Nutritional Supplement Program for Infant-Age 3, (food list attached) when proper development is most critical for future health, has been a great success.  Specialized foods, instructions, educational materials and counseling are offered to over 45 families and the parental feedback is overwhelming 

  • Diapers and Wipes, along with some personal items, are also provided

  • Children’s Vision Testing through age 11 provided by the Honey Brook Lion’s Club

  • Toys and gently used children’s books are always on display

  • In conjunction with local employers, every child will receive at least one New Toy this December

  • Our Employment Support Program is gaining momentum with more  participants, job leads and successful employment each month helping transition over 30% of those served each year

  • We have been named United Way Agency of the Year for 2019-2020

  • In partnership with United Way and Legal Aid , our volunteer team prepared and submitted 177 successful property tax appeals netting nearly $1,000/savings per year for each client participating

 

The service area may be small in relative terms, but the need is great in order to maintain our high quality standards.  Over 800 people were served in November, a 15% increase over 2018 and 21 new families applied for help…nearly double last year.  Unfortunately that need continues into this Holiday Season.

 

Best wishes, Merry Christmas and a Happy 2020…..thank you once again for all you do!!
