Ways to Help during the COVID-19 Pandemic

Middletown Community Thanksgiving Project

Be a part of the Middletown Community Thanksgiving Project! Donate a pie for community Thanksgiving baskets.

Russell Library will be collecting fresh, store-bought pies on Saturday, November 21st (10am-5pm) and Sunday, November 22nd (1-5pm).

Register to receive a reminder email to drop your pie off at the Library on those dates. There is more need than usual this year due to the pandemic. Your community thanks you!

If you would like to volunteer to assist at Amazing Grace Food Pantry with this year’s Thanksgiving project, you may sign-up here: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/5080548adad2ea2fe3-2020

Donate to Gilead

Hinka's Cupboard

The Hinka’s Cupboard food pantry is open the last Thursday of each month. They need donations of money and food.
