We have a number of ongoing community supported Mission Projects and need your help to make them a success.

Help us collect items for the unhoused.
The Center for Safety and Change
Join us in helping women and children flee domestic violence.
We are supporting the Center for Safety and Change to support women and children fleeing domestic violence. They have said that diapers and wipes are a priority, so we will focus on collecting those items for the time being. They have also mentioned travel-sized toiletries are needed for the women fleeing domestic violence. Please drop off items in the wooden cabinet outside the parish hall.
*The food pantry will close for the summer and begin again this fall. Stay tuned for new collection dates to be announced.* The SOCSD Food Pantry needs our help, they are critically low on supplies. We have set the goal of collecting 50 items (specifically cereal, pasta, and mac n cheese) in the next 2 weeks. The South Orangetown Central School District Food Pantry is open during the school year - from September through June. We drop off food donations every week.
What to do now: drop off non-perishable food and toiletries in the gray bin outside the parish door. Volunteer to help drop off donations on a Thursday afternoon at the collection site in Piermont on Rte 9W. Contact Carol to volunteer: aiyana [at] optonline [dot] net.
People to People Food Delivery
Can you pick up and drop off baked goods?
On Tuesdays, we go to BJ's and pick up the bakery goods and bring them to People to People, which is Rockland County's largest food pantry working to help struggling Rocklanders through difficult times with dignity. On Thursdays, we pick up from Costco. We have an ongoing need for volunteers to pick up and drop off!
What to do now: please contact Diane Conklin to volunteer at: 845-222-7430.
