Their efforts totaled 20,994 pounds of food packed and delivered to the greater Philadelphia area. The JLP Food to Families Committee has been partnering with Share for nine years and they volunteer at Share’s warehouse monthly to help empower Share’s impact within the community.

Along with Spring Service Weekend, the JLP also volunteered at Face to Face on March 9 and March 24. They assisted with kitchen duties such as chopping vegetables and helping set up, serve, and clean up the day’s meals. Face to Face relieves suffering in their guests by giving them support to meet their immediate needs through their core programs – meal, legal center, health center, and social services center.
