About Basic Blessings
Tabernacle Basic Blessings began in 2017 after one of our adult Sunday School classes finished a study in the book of Acts. They wanted to apply the compassionate and caring lessons that they learned from the study and put it into action! As a result, a modern day "Acts Ministry" to the Lower Township community was formed called Tabernacle Basic Blessings.
“TBB” is designed to reach out to those who are struggling to afford basic necessities to their families. There are plenty of food banks and social programs available to the community in our area, but there are few that give out the basic needs such as toothpaste, shampoo, toilet paper, laundry detergent, deodorant, etc. Tabernacle Basic Blessings is providing these basic necessities! Distributions are held from the Basic Blessings room at Tabernacle UMC on the third Saturday every month from 10-11:00 am for those in the Lower Township area. New clients are asked to bring proof of residency and birth certificates for each child living in the household.
