As the COVID 19 situation advances and more restrictions are put into place by Federal and State health officials, it is important we follow their guidelines. With that being said, we at Because You Matter have decided to postpone our weekly meal until further notice. 

If you need food assistance, we will try to make accommodations to have food delivered to you.

For food assistance requests please contact:

We wanted to take a minute and address everyone’s concerns about Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19).  Over the past few weeks we at Because You Matter have been keeping a close eye on the situation and making decisions on weekly basis considering risk factors and current conditions of the disease. Now that this crisis has reached a Pandemic, we need to be extra vigilant and careful to protect not only us but those we serve. Fact is the core demographic that attends our weekly meal is among the highest risk factor. With that in mind we need to be prudent and err on the side of caution.  While there are no confirmed cases of the disease in the Leigh Valley, we have decided to follow guidelines set by the state and federal health commissions and not hold a meal this week on 3/12/2020. 

We will continue to monitor the situation closely and will make our decisions on a week by week basis. Updates will be posted on our website https://firstumcwg.com. starting the end of today. Your safety is our top concern, Because You Matter. .
