The Hershey Area Ministerium seeks to respond to the needs of the
local community and to provide ecumenical worship services. The
Lenten offering is donated to several local social service organizations
including The Hershey Food Bank and Community Outreach, Love INC,
and Hope Within. Donations may be dropped off at any one of the host
churches with checks made out to the “Hershey Ministerium”.

Love INC: The mission of Love In the Name of Christ of Greater
Hershey is to mobilize churches to transform lives and the community,
doing so all in the Name of Christ. Primarily, Love INC does this through
a centralized call center or Clearinghouse Ministry where needs
are assessed, and resources matched. The Parsonage Ministry is a
home away from home for families of adult patients at the Penn State
Hershey Medical Center. The Mentoring Ministry provides one-on-one
guidance to help with longer-term needs such as budgeting and chronic
poverty resource issues. The Personal Care Closet Outreach provides
personal, household, and baby basics not covered by food stamps.
Educational classes for life skills and transformational ministries are
being developed. The communities of Hershey, Hummelstown and
Elizabethtown are served. Please contact Love INC at 717-835-0101 to
get involved or go to www.loveincgreaterhershey.org.

The Hershey Food Bank and Community Outreach is an all volunteer
501(c)(3) organization whose purpose is to serve the community by
providing free food and assistance with the temporary needs of families
in financial distress and emergency help to transients. Our goal is to help
all who are in need and to stop hunger. Twice a month during the three
days we are open, registered families have the opportunity to shop for
their food needs as well as paper and personal care items. The food
bank also makes available free budget counseling to any family in need
of this service. Contact information: or
717-520-3143. More information can also be found on our
website: www.hersheyfoodbank.com

Hope Within: Hope Within was co-founded in 2002 by Brian & Donita
Sturgis with the dream of providing primary health care to the uninsured
low-income residents of Lancaster, Dauphin, and Lebanon Counties.
Through the Grace of God, the organization is excited to Share His Love
by offering excellent and free primary medical care, low-cost slidingscale counseling and donation-based dental care via the hands of more
than thirty volunteer medical, dental providers, therapists and nurses.
