Sharing Our Blessings -
Easter Food Basket 2023
With the start of warmer, sunnier days comes the promise of Easter, not far behind. As we progress through the Lenten season, let us also remember those who are still in need of wholesome food in the fridge and pantry. The Hedges Chapel Outreach Committee invites you to join us in sharing our blessings with 8 families (49 individuals) in need this Easter. We are continuing with the families we helped at Thanksgiving and Christmas. They have been identified by Starting Points from the Pleasant View Elementary School area. The food will provide a nice meal as well as supplies to utilize the leftovers and stock the pantry a bit.
We ask that you consider incorporating some of these items into any food delivery, contactless pickup, or other shopping that you do. Please donate ONLY these non-perishable items.

Sliced Pineapple (can)
Mac & Cheese (large, 32 oz. box, no singles please)

If you would rather make a cash donation for fresh food items, please write “Holiday Outreach” in the memo section of your check made payable to Hedges Chapel and send it to 668 Mt. Lake Road, Hedgesville, WV 25427. For Easter, cash donations will help offset the cost of hams and other fresh food such as apples and other fruit, rolls, butter, bread, eggs, potatoes, celery, onions, carrots. and cherry pie.
