Bread & Life Giving Society

Contributing on a monthly basis is so helpful to LifePath Christian Ministries.  It means we can plan for and provide the best possible services to our neighbors in need, because you and other members ensure we have a consistent source of income. To learn more about becoming a Bread & Life Giving Society Member, please contact Scharmen L. Konieczka at (717) 845-7662 x1107.

Planned Giving

Most Americans die without a will, which means that many resources that could’ve gone to charity are lost forever. Remembering us in your will is a great way to show compassion long after you’re gone. Learn more by calling Tiffany Glatfelter at 717.845-7662 x1105.

In an effort to be good stewards, we have developed a set of Economy Store Donation Guidelines. This is not an all-inclusive list, but an outline to assist you and help LifePath reduce its costs.

Food donations are also accepted at our main Drop-Off Center (see address below).

We also accept vehicle donations. For more information, please contact Matthew Carey at 717.845.7662 x1107 or
