POWER PACK MEALS
Power Packs are a two-day supplemental meal pack for children at risk for hunger on the weekends. We are in need of microwavable cup meals (spaghetti, ravioli, macaroni and cheese, etc), as well as fruit cups, pudding cups, and granola bars. The packs are given to the Marion Elementary School.
MITTENS & HATS MINISTRY
We are currently collecting mittens, hats, and gloves for donation to the Chambersburg Hispanic American Center. All sizes are needed.
A volunteer case manager works with Salem to assist members of the community who are in need to find the necessary goods and services they require.
CHAMBERSBURG CONFERENCE FURNITURE MINISTRY
A furniture and household item ministry operates out of Salem. In 2014, the ministry made 100 trips to pick up unwanted, used items and made 200 trips delivering needed items. If you would like to assist in this please contact the church office (firstname.lastname@example.org, 717-375-4152). Donated items are needed, and cash donations are welcomed. We also need volunteers to help with pick-up and delivery.
LUTHERAN COUNSELING SERVICES
We have covenanted with SpiriTrust Lutheran Counseling Services to contribute to their finances each year. LCS provides Christian-based counseling to all people for all situations. LCS is located at First Lutheran Church in Chambersburg.
PRISON UNIFORM REPAIR
Members of Salem repair prison uniforms that are ripped or damaged in anyway. It helps save the county money. To date 500 plus uniforms have been repaired and returned to the Franklin County Jail.
