2020 Christmas Food Collection and Distribution

We are asking each family to help families in need by donating one complete order of Christmas food from the Christmas food list (along with anything else you’d like to add from the secondary list). If you would prefer to donate a gift card from Giant or Weis you can drop if off during the food drop off on Saturday, December 5. We are praying that we can help about 200 families.


You can donate safely via a drive by drop off on Saturday December 5 from 9-11 AM at Templo el Refugio, 111 Dewberry Avenue, Bethlehem. It is super important to donate on this day so that we will have a good idea of how many families we can serve prior to registration which will be the December 7th and 8th.


If you are in need or know someone who is, please send an email to the church office with your name, phone #, name and address of family/individual needing food and recipient's phone #, and # of people in recipient's family by December 7th. (Please call the church office if you have any questions.)


If you are able and willing to volunteer to help with the food collection and/or distribution, please contact Hal or Joyce Mante at or 610-657-8901 ASAP. Please note that masks must be worn by volunteers and we will practice social distancing.
