Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church : FOOD FOR ROCKAWAY, QUEENS:
This will be my last email on how to help those affected by Hurricane Sandy until next week. (If more information becomes available – I will send one out sometime next week.)
I wanted to bring two other ways of helping to your attention. One effort is through one of our parishioners who has been helping those in the Rockaways in Queens, NY and the other is through the Mom’s Group and Academy of Our Lady – our parish school.
If you have any questions, please contact those below for each area.
P.S. Anyone who sent food for the warming shelter in a crock pot or other container you would like back, please stop by and pick them up! THANK YOU!!!!!
FOOD FOR ROCKAWAY, QUEENS:
Below, is an email I received yesterday from one of our parishioners, Janette Morgan, who has been helping in Rockaway, Queens:
I am involved with a group of volunteers going out to rockway queens . St Camillus food distribution is desperate. People out there have not had a hot meal in over week. The merchants out there are tapped to the max.
Do you know if any parishioners would be interested in providing trays of ziti, pasta, rice chicken just basic sustenance . I will be going out to queens first thing Saturday morning . Maybe this is a long stretch asking you but if people feel like they need to help this might be something.
Anyone who is willing to make a tray of food and bring it to Janette please do so!
Janette’s Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Janette’s Address: 166 N. Pleasant Avenue, Ridgewood
When: Please drop off food from 5:30pm to 8:30pm
She will be leaving Saturday morning by 5am. All deliveries of food need to take place BY Friday evening.
