HOPE COMMUNITY SOUP KITCHEN –
NEEDS YOUR HELP
A few of our parishioners cook, in their homes, for the HOPE Community Supper Program. We are looking for new volunteers, as some cooks are no longer able to do it, and the need for this service is greater than ever due to the current situation (lost jobs and reduced incomes).
We cook in our homes and deliver to the Church one to two times a month, It is then picked up and delivered to HOPE Community Services in New Rochelle (
). We do this every third Friday, and also the occasional 5th Tuesday of the month. If cooking is "not your thing" but you'd like to help with shopping for other food items, that is also really needed.
If you think you may be able to help, please contact Lynne Richy at 914-772-8348 to sign up, or simply to ask questions about this.
WE WOULD LOVE TO HAVE YOU!

NATIONAL FAMILY DAY
National Family Day, celebrated on September 26, puts the spotlight on the people that make our lives meaningful. Families come in many forms and sizes and under different circumstances, but what they all share is unconditional love and support for those growing on the same family tree. From nuclear family units to extended clans, families can drive us crazy and make life worth living. Take some time today to appreciate the special folks in your life — Making Everyday Special is the National Center on Addiction and Substance Abuses’s initiative to promote simple, everyday things parents can do to build a strong, healthy relationship with their kids that prevents future drug use.
