First Baptist Church of Madison and the Madison Area YMCA Partner to Fill Church Food Pantry

(Madison, NJ) October 1, 2019–The Madison Area YMCA and the First Baptist Church of Madison partnered to fill the church’s food pantry.

Y members and the community answered the call to bring non-perishable food contributions to the Y’s Family Center resulting in overflowing receptacles that eventually packed the pantry’s shelves. As the need is continuous, the community is invited to bring food donations year-round to the First Baptist Church of Madison located at 36 Cook Avenue in Madison.

Relaunched by the women’s ministry in Spring 2019, the First Baptist Church’s pantry provides nourishment and comfort to seniors, college students, church members and others in the community. 

As a cause-driven charitable organization, the Madison Area YMCA is dedicated to nurturing the potential of every child and teen, and improving the community’s health and well-being and giving back by providing support to our neighbors.
