New Pantry Drive-Thru Service. Donations at Heritage Church.
Update: On April 22, 2020, at the request of Inter Parish Ministry (IPM), Heritage Church volunteers removed the bins from behind the church. Due to COVID-19 concerns, IPM does not want donations that have been handled by multiple people.
Inter Parish Ministry’s Newtown and Amelia Food Pantries will each offer Drive-Thru Food Pantries. Clients are welcome to visit a Drive-Thru Pantry every two weeks and receive a pre-packaged selection of groceries (rather than the usual policy of every 30 days), because IPM understands this time of crisis may place additional strain on those in need.
Drive-Thru Pantry hours will be as follows:
- Newtown Pantry: Monday and Tuesday, 10:00 am – 2:00 pm
- Amelia Pantry: Thursday and Friday, 10:00 am – 2:00 pm
Donations of food, personal care and cleaning products ONLY will be accepted. IPM will NOT be accepting clothing or household items until the Choice Pantry reopens

To bring donations for the pantries:
They can be dropped off at Heritage UU Church, in any of the four bins in the fenced in area in back of the church, under the tent cover in the playground. Bob Drake will collect any donations and deliver them to the pantries.
What is currently the highest need are personal care items, especially shampoo/conditioner, shaving lather, laundry & dish soap, cleaning and disinfecting items (Lysol spray, hand sanitizer, bleach, alcohol etc.). Also, items for “period packs,” (pads, tampons, liners). We have plenty of soap & body wash.
Items can also be dropped off directly to the pantries:
