Good afternoon, everybody – today we served a total of 20 families, including 35 adults, 21 children and 4 seniors.
Last Saturday Lyn and I and our husbands attended a meeting in Ossining about immigration issues.  Afterwards they put on a cantata entitled “Manos Indocumentadas” (Undocumented Hands).  It was so well done that we’re thinking of inviting the group to perform here at South Church, maybe in the fall, as a fundraiser for the pantry.  Will keep everybody posted.
We got a wonderful letter from an organization by the name of the Society of the Friendly Sons of St. Patrick in Westchester.  They said that they’re a fraternal organization that celebrates their common heritage but they’re also committed to providing charitable assistance to those in need.  Not sure how they learned about us but they’ve pledged a significant amount to the Food Bank to help us provide food to our clients.  What a great organization, and what a great surprise!
Next Wednesday we’ll be visited again by the Westchester Hispanic Coalition.  Our network is growing, and that’s a good thing.
