TLC Christmas 2018

Christmas and New Year’s may have come and gone, but their memories continue to fill us with warmth and appreciation for each other. This year we were blessed to serve 45 families!!

Bridget and Pat Keaveney led the way in the kitchen in preparing a wonderful meal. Turkey, ham, vegetables and some homemade treats to wrap up!

Once again, the Mission Partners at Temple Lutheran and our great neighbors throughout Havertown came through with toy donations for our Christmas Bazaar. Our recent confirmands did an incredible job getting all the gifts wrapped and labeled!

This was also the second year that we received a bountiful donation of various produce. Friends were able to leave with two bags of freshly picked goods.

The pantry room was packed all day and the foot traffic was non-stop. The bag boys hardly had a minute to catch their breath!

The TLC Food Pantry team wishes everyone a blessed New Year. We feel fortunate to have been able to assist so many this year and are looking forward to expanding our outreach in years to come.

TLC Christmas Lunch & Bazaar 2018

It’s that most Wonderful Time of Year again. Of course time for all the family gatherings, the year-end work parties, the running around trying to get things done, and the preparations that never quite seem to get done. But also for the now 3rd Annual TLC Christmas Lunch & Bazaar!

Christmas Lunch 2017.

The Keaveney family has graciously offered to prepare a hot turkey meal (or two) for the TLC Food Pantry again this year. They’ll be joined by a multitude (see what I did there?) of helpers to prepare a hearty meal for all.

What better way to finish off a great meal, than with some……shopping! This month we have some extra treats in store. Everyone will be invited to select a toy (or two) for any children in the household (we typically have gifts for the 0-12 age range). While we’re wrapping those gifts for you, we’ll still offer the ‘usual’ pantry shopping experience.

The TLC pantry team is also hard at work trying to collect a special collection of fresh produce this month. Fresh fruits and veggies are spectacular any time of year, though even more so now that we’re all spending more and more time indoors.

Who doesn’t love a Christmas orange in their stocking?!

We hope you’ll be able to join us this coming Saturday, 12/22/18. Lunch service starts at 12:00p, followed by shopping from 1-3:00p. We expect to be opening the doors between 11:30-11:45. We will continue to us the numbered card system, even for the toy shopping. We ask that everyone remains polite and respectful of each other;-)

Interested in volunteering this weekend? We have a few opening remaining. Please email for more information.
