New Hope UMC

JLH Food Bank

is our primary mission.

Each month New Hope members distribute food and paper goods to selected people in our community. A committee is responsible for the procurement activity and members of the church can bring in items as well. Participation by members and friends is not at a high level because it is difficult to drop items off given the church hours and distance considerations. It is now possible to make donations through the website which can be directed to the Food Bank. To see the online donation function, click here. If you wish, you may also send checks to PO Box 54, Rowesville 29133 marked for that purpose.

The mission is named after Justine Lee Halls, a beloved member of New Hope, who inspired us all during her lifetime. It is modeled after the food bank project at St. Andrews UMC, Orangeburg, SC. It has been expanded several times through the years. We have received generous grants from the Conference on two occasions.  David & Cathy Hutto and Linda Heape are the members who direct activities.
