Gingrichs Mennonite is partnering with Church World Service (CWS) and local churches to resettle UN refugees in Lebanon County. This Fall, Gingrichs is hosting a household supply drive to collect kitchen items to outfit two kitchens for incoming refugee families. Other area churches are doing similar drives for other household rooms and furnishings.

If you would like to participate in the household supply drive, you may review the list of items requested and sign up for any number of items you would like to donate. Items may be new or lightly used. Click here for the list of items. All items can be dropped off at Gingrichs Mennonite Church. The deadline for drop offs is December 12, 2021.

Financial donations are also welcome and will only go for the initial purchase of household supplies. Donations can be made by cash or check. Checks can be made out to Gingrichs Mennonite Church with “CWS” written in the memo line.
