I am a volunteer at Lord's Pantry and has been touched by the help and caring I see given to so many families in our area. The way the Lord's Pantry is set up so that a family can come and shop for groceries and have a choice as to what their family likes is very different than other places who give what is available. I have new friends both in the other volunteers and the clients who I now know and am happy to share a part of their lives. Lord's Pantry is also so special in that each and every person involved is a volunteer - there are no paid positions. I truly consider this experience to be a blessing in my life.
I have been volunteering at the Lord's Pantry for two years. They have a dedicated team of volunteers to help the growing number of families that need food in our area. In addition, these families recently received thanksgiving dinner with all the trimmings and next week we will distribute the christmas gifts from generous companies and individuals that have adopted them for the holiday season. It has truly been a rewarding experience for me.
The Lord's Pantry brings our community together in so many special ways besides the obvious needed help that it provides. Being aware of a need in our own community and being able to take part in such a friendly, clean, and family-type organization is simply a pleasure. There are so many simple, and inviting ways to donate to this great organization. People attend parties where the "gifts" are asked to be items to donate to our pantry! That makes everyone feel great!! The workers at the pantry are the most welcoming, kind and generous people and they make you feel wonderful. they really make you feel an important part of the community, as a recipient, donor or whatever part you take in the Lord's Pantry Family. Truly one of the best things about living in Chester County, is knowing that such an important, well-run, caring organization is there for all to take part.
We have been volunteering at the Pantry for several years now, and it is an honor to participate among such as hard-working and caring all-volunteer staff. Clients are received warmly, just like valued customers, and, should their need continue, eventually come to feel more like beloved family members. The Pantry's cheerful, warm, inviting and compassionate tone is set by the Board members, leaders, and senior volunteers, many of whom devote very long hours to Pantry operations and outreach, while somehow not only maintaining top quality of work, but also devising creative solutions to meet unique client needs. We have personally seen clients lives change, as despair evolves to hope, based on the support (food, friendship, respect, and more) they receive from Lords Pantry of Downingtown.

My wife and I recently attended a Lords' Kitchen soup kitchen event.We really enjoyed being able to have a night out together and be in a community of service.Seeing people we know sharing an evening af awareness and contribution. The volunteers ,who were our host,gave of themselves and put a face on an organization we had only known through the sharing of others.When we to;d others about the event people responded with interest.We look forward to continuing our support with the knowledge that they serve others when others are in need.
