Good afternoon, everybody – today we served a total of 26 families, including 39 adults, 32 children and 8 seniors.
Carol needed a hand truck to bring all the food donated this week by Zion Episcopal Church in Dobbs Ferry. It turns out that a family affiliated with Zion had a party and encouraged all their guests to bring food for the pantry. What a kind thing to do! We ended up with multiple boxes filled with pasta, dried beans, soups and many other foods. Much love goes out to that family and to Zion.
Last Wednesday we had so much produce after both the morning and evening pantries that Eileen ended up carrying a huge box of fruit and vegetables to the Irvington Seniors. They were amazed at how much food she brought. And this week Tom dropped bread off to them also.
Tricia brought more applications for a free child’s mattress to the pantry today, and we gave them all out, listing the pantry as the referral source. Let’s see if Ashley Home Store can provide more of our clients with mattresses.
Next Wednesday, July 12 and 13, are the days that The Church of St. Barnabas in Irvington will be having their summer and vintage clothing sale. Wednesday the sale runs from 5:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., and Thursday it’s from 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. And the proceeds go to charities! The Church of St. Barnabas is a very loving and caring church.
