There are 18 Care Closets in around the Presbytery of Philadelphia. The Care Closets are ministries of our churches and related organizations that exist in at-risk communities and alongside neighbors who are vulnerable to or presently experience food insecurity and hunger. Each Care Closet provides food supplies, various items necessary for daily living, and educational opportunities as individuals seek to overcome hunger and move towards sustainable living. The demand for ministries like the Care Closets continues to exceed what is presently provided, so each Care Closet continues to raise funds, collect donations, recruit volunteers, explore transportation possibilities, and collaborate with congregations and other supportive entities as we move towards the day when people hunger and thirst no more.
Each Care Closet in the Presbytery of Philadelphia operates independently and focuses on the needs of their particular community. Interested in supporting, partnering with, or launching a new Care Closet? Click the links below to learn more.
