So since you volunteer so much you'd obviously see that Teri didn't win the award, the EMSP did.Read More And since you volunteer so much you'd obviously know that the work that the EMSP does (that Teri leads) generates thousands of volunteer hours each year for the Emmaus business and residential community. It's clear that you have a personal problem with Teri and decided to try to smear her anonymously. Your pathetic attempt has been pointed out as such. Is there anything else you'd like to add? And no one believes you volunteer at all, stop making stuff up.

You don't know me! The EMSP is a joke and and obviously you are a joke. Yes Terri is a horribleRead More leader for a non-profit organization for the small businesses of emmaus. Name 5 substantial things emsp has done to help the small bussinesses in town! Nothing. The emsp and Terri only care about their own personal survival

1. Started the Farmers Market, brings thousands into Emmaus every Sunday. 2. Got funding,Read More contractor and deal for the Ritter Furniture building project. 3. Got funding for the Borough Master Plan - crucial because you have to have one in order to qualify for grants. 4. Published the Emmaus Community guide, and distributed over 25,000 copies. 5. Ran many festivals over the years, brings thousands of people into Emmaus. I know you by the way.

Circulation Day is also FREE! It is really based on the spiritual principle of FLOW--as you give,Read More so shall you receive. Items range from housewares, to toys, to linens, art, books and items that always surprise us. They are all items someone wanted at one point but are ready to release for someone else's good. There is no bartering with God and you cannot out give God. We welcome the community to come and find a treasure or something useful as we open ourselves to the flow of God's good.

Although not mentioned in the Patch article, our local Zionsville farms support the local food bankRead More as well, I believe, as do our local scouting groups. Thank you for bringing this community effort to the news! Sandy Ruch-Morrin, Zionsville, PA

Girl Scout troops from the Tri-Creek Service Unit (Alburtis, Lower Macungie, Macungie, UpperRead More Milford) are collecting items for the Zionsville food pantry each month as an on-going service project. Debby Terfinko, Tri-Creek Service Project Coordinator
Marty Milne December 3, 2011 at 07:59 pm
To Sandy and Debby and readers of the Emmaus Patch, You are absolutely correct. These are one ofRead More the MANY local organizations and businesses that help support the pantry. We couldn't do it without you. From the Girl Scouts, local farms, and local businesses like the Zionsville Antique Mall, to individuals who want to give back to their community in service, this is the COMMUNITY'S pantry. We are simply best to house it in our church. And without volunteers from all the churches and partners within the community helping EACH WEEK to pack bags, sort canned goods, stock shelves, and the list goes on and on, the pantry couldn't do what it does for others. I invited everyone to come and visit the pantry. It's not much to look at, but it is a beautiful thing.
