Help Rebuild Church that Feeds Our Neighbors
We must raise money to renovate the Asbury United Methodist Church fellowship hall and kitchen where service to the community, the hungry and the food insecure has helped many people for many, many years.
The Hunger Coalition was started at Asbury. The members of Asbury and their community partners are no longer able to prepare meals for the soup kitchen or meals for delivery without safe floors and air handling equipment.
Grants are helping restore and preserve the main church, including its unusual pineapple-topped steeple and original brick work done by hand by local masons. The history of this church is very important but the ongoing mission of food service to those less fortunate MUST CONTINUE!! And for the food mission, we need your help.
Please read more about the history on the links below. Historic Easton, Inc. is partnered with the church trustees to manage the funds raised and to oversee the renovations. See links below.
