Where Prayerful Hearts Serve With Love

Food Pantry/ Clothing Pantry

Saturday Mornings -

7:30 am Clothing Pantry

8:00 am - 10:00 am Drive-Thru Pantry 

The emergency food & clothing pantry is a non-profit service, staffed by parish volunteers and operated from the parish hall each Saturday morning. Due to Covid, we are now a drive-through pantry. Clothing is also available on Saturday mornings on a first come first serve basis. We ask anyone taking clothes to be considerate of the people after them and only take what they need. The Food Pantry is open to anyone in need. Food is also available by appointment during the week. To set up an appointment, call Dianne Anderson at 703-590-0030.

Due to COVID 19, the Food Pantry is a “drive-through" service from 8-10 am every Saturday.

Other Ways to Help the Food and Clothing Pantries: 

We accept all gently used clothing and accessories. Clothing donations should be dropped off in the red donation bin behind the church building. Any other items you have to donate, please call or email Dianne Anderson to receive instructions on how to donate.

Our Clothing Closet is open the same hours as the Food Pantry and by appointment also. Clothes are usually sold prices range from $.50 to $1.00 except on brand new items. All profits go to Food Pantry expenses. 

Donations | We ask that you bring donations of non-perishable boxed and canned foods anytime you come to the Church. Place it in the large wooden bin out in the commons area. These donations are used by our Food Pantry. We also accept donations of perishable foods but ask that you make arrangements to bring it to the Church to ensure safe food handling practices. We especially love the extras from your garden, fresh produce is an extra special treat for our patrons.
