Abiding Presence Food Pantry
2nd and 4th Saturdays from 7:45-11:45 a.m.
October 9 & 23, November 6 & 20 (1st & 3rd Saturday), December 11
Knollwood is teaming/partnering with Abiding Presence Food Ministries to serve our local community. The food pantry provides food for local families on the 2nd and 4th Saturday of each month. Recently they have served up to 200 families on a Saturday and need assistance. Volunteers are needed to distribute food on pantry day, two Saturdays each month.
Volunteers needed for distribution must be at least 18 years old. The hours are from 7:45 a.m. to 11:45 p.m. Food is provided at an outdoor drive-through station as well as inside at a farmers market where folks can pick and choose what they need.
- The food pantry observes all COVID 19 safety protocols.
- Abiding Presence Lutheran Church is located at 6304 Lee Chapel Rd, Burke, VA 22015
Weekday Two Hour Shifts
Abiding Presence also needs weekday volunteers (ages 18+) to assist in packing bags and performing an inventory of the donations. They’re asking for two hour shifts any day Monday to Friday between 9:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.
If you wish to join in these efforts or have any questions, please contact Glenn Keller, firstname.lastname@example.org
Note: If you are interested in leading an effort involving the congregation, please contact Glenn for assistance in coordinating the event with staff as well as advertising the event on the Knollwood website and in the weekly newsletter.
