Thank you to all who generously donate to our food pantry. During March 2019, we were happy to assist 113 families, 34 seniors 154 adults and 137 children. We helped 5 new families. The generosity of the parishioners of St. Anne’s Parish allows us to reach out to people in our Brentwood/Bay Shore neighborhood who struggle each day to make ends meet.
We also distributed Easter baskets to 127 children whose parents come to our pantry each month. Teenagers from the Bay Shore/Islip area assisted in making 60 Easter baskets for these children. A wonderful group of seniors from Islip donated 50 Easter baskets. All the baskets were given out before Easter and I know the children were delighted to receive them. Thank you to all who helped.
When items are available at our Outreach, we give our clients gently used clothing, towels and bedding. Any donated clothing or bedding should be washed or dry cleaned for sanitary reasons. Our clients are very grateful for these extra items. All donations are truly appreciated by those who cannot afford to purchase them on their own.
Here are some items we need this month: soup, rice, beans, cereal, jelly (small jars), juices, toilet paper, tissues, paper towels, shampoo, conditioner, body wash, soap, deodorant, toothpaste, shaving cream, disposable razors, diapers (size 3, 4 & 5), baby wipes, feminine hygiene products, pet food and laundry detergent. If you have any questions, please call me 631-273-8113 ext. 229.
Thank you for caring for the poor in our parish community. Janet Lambert, Outreach Coordinator
