Grocery Club - Tree of Life offers a Grocery Club to help low income families whose budget doesn't quite make it to the end of the month. Grocery Club meets on the Tuesday of the week before distribution each month to sort groceries and again on the third Thursday of each month for our Grocery Club distribution, where we show people Jesus' love by providing them with food for 3-4 meals. Join us Tuesday at 9:30 am as we sort the food, or Thursday from 3:00 to 5:00 p.m. as we distribute food to the clients.

If you prefer to make a donation of food, here is a list of items to consider:

Cereal                                Peanut Butter                         Tuna fish                       Canned meat

Lutheran Community Services ( - Lutheran Community Services serves low income families in Wilmington and New Castle County with emergency food, housing and other services.

Quilters – The Tree of Life Quilt Group meets the 2nd Wednesday of each month, at 10 am. The group takes its mission from Jesus' admonishment that, "If you have done it unto the least of these, you have done it unto me," which is found in Matthew 25:40. Quilts are made to specific guidelines provided by Lutheran World Relief.  Once a batch of quilts is ready, they are taken to Lutheran World Relief collection points where they are packed and shipped to the world's most desperate locations for distribution. No Experience necessary.  All are welcome!
