On this day we will meet at the Congregational Church of Patchogue to give out free groceries, gift cards, toiletries, and haircuts to those in needs.
Due to the shutdown 800,000 federal workers have gone without pay, aviation experts warn that limited resources have made flying less safe and national parks have been struck by vandalism, etc.
We want to do our part in giving back to our local community and families affected by the shutdown.
We will be partnering with the Congregational Church of Patchogue - The Church offers free groceries, toiletries, showers, and haircuts to those in need, but they are focusing efforts right now on helping furloughed workers.
We need to collect various donations- gift cards, non-perishable food items, toilet paper, sanitary products, etc. The funds from this account will be used to purchase these items.
We are looking to get these items into the hands of people in need ASAP, and will be giving out free groceries on Wed. 1/23 at the Congregational Church.
