Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
South Bend Pantry & Social Services, INC is a non-
profit agency serving South Bend & Elkhart County
residents who are in need of food, clothes, and
toiletry items. Applicants must fill out a short form
to verify their individual need status. Once the
application is completed participants can get food,
clothes, and toiletry items based on supply. The
agency is not new but yet has expanded its
services to South Bend & Elkhart. We don't turn
anyone away who is truly in need no matter what
city he or she resides in as long as the individual
is willing to abide by the rules that are set forth
by the agency & we have the supplies.
We believe that the physical, mental, spiritual, &
social needs must be met before a person can be
made whole and stand on their on. We don't
believe in just helping the physical needs of the
community because at this agency& ministry we
believe that by helping an individual in part will
not allow them to stand on their own and be self
Here at South Bend Pantry & Social Services, INC
we do our best to deal with all four components &
therefore believe once these needs are meet the
person is whole and is able to be fully
Meeting the physical needs of this community
means to us to offers services that would keep
families warm during the winter by offering coats,
boots, shoes, gloves, hats, toiletry items, as well
We offer services that would deal with mental &
spiritual issues by providing a safe environment
for families, and prayer if need be.
The agency helps individuals who express an
interest in getting help with social issues. We do
this by referring them to others agencies within
the community who would like to help & by using
our personal resources to help the individual
meet their goal.
The Pantry is open once a week to low-income
families, elderly, sick and shut in, and the lame
that would otherwise go hungry. We give out non-
perishable items, clothes, and toiletry items as we
can get them. All families are screened to ensure
that they are truly in need. We ask all applicants
not to abuse the pantry and we ask them not to
take the food or any other items that they don't
need. We would like to continue on helping those
that we can but we know that no one agency can
help everyone. Every agency does what it can with
the resources that are available. This agency is
seeking out help from the community so that we
can continue our services.
We would like to continue to be a blessing to this
region by doing what God has asked us to do.
That is to show love and charity to others as he
has shown to us. He said when we feed others we
are feeding him.
Because we know that the Bible says: Matthew 4:4 - But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every wordthat proceedeth out of the mouth of God. So in this verse it is telling us that we need more than just food to heal our souls. Without help this goal is impossible.
In Jesus Name Let everything be done decent and in order
PRAISE GOD IN ADVANCE
