Meet Our Newest Partner

The English playwright John Heywood is credited with coining the phrase “Many hands make light work”, a mantra we fully embrace at Maranatha-Carlisle.  We certainly couldn’t help all the people we do without our many business, community, and faith partners, which is why we are excited to announce our newest partner, CommunityAid.

CommunityAid is a Christian organization founded in 2009 with a mission of providing affordable clothing and jobs to employees, many of whom were seeking second chance employment.  They collaborate with over 800 area churches, charities, and first responders throughout Central PA and currently operate five stores located in Hanover, Harrisburg, Lancaster, Mechanicsburg, and Selinsgrove.  Their bins are easily recognizable, but they recently started a program for organizations like Maranatha-Carlisle that do not have an outside location to collect clothing, but still wanted to benefit from their program.  We now have a CommunityAid cart at our office in Carlisle, and will be collecting clothes to donate to be sold at CommunityAid stores.  CommunityAid gives us a little bit of money per pound of clothing donated, along with CommunityAid gift cards for families in need.  We will also be eligible for future grants from CommunityAId because of our participation in their program. You can learn more about CommunityAid on their website here.

If you have gently used clothing you would like to donate, please drop it off in our bin, located at 20 N. Hanover Street, or give us a call and we can pick it up.  Also, if you know of any other organizations we can partner with, please reach out to Communication & Development Manager Matthew Wagner by email or by calling 717-258-1000 extension 210.
