Helping, Caring, Listening, Serving- These words and more describe just some of what Pastor J.R. Wells and his wife, Rhonda, do for the lives of so many individuals and families in the Shippensburg area through The King’s Kettle Food Pantry. Over the past 27 years (2020 marking their 28th year), the food pantry has answered the call of so many lives in need of food, health and beauty aids, infant needs, and holiday cheer through food drives, fundraising, and other means in which to bring joy to the lives of others.
The COVID-19 pandemic has touched and shaken the lives of everyone around us, from families large and small, to counties and townships far and near. For organizations like The King’s Kettle and others who strive to meet the needs of so many already touched by forces beyond their control, COVID-19 has been particularly hard on them because they have seen the numbers of those in need go far beyond their capacity to serve. However, they have remained strong and diligent in their goal to help others whenever and however possible.
