“Warm Up the Winter” with Hats, Gloves & Socks for the Homeless

Did you know that SOCKS are the most needed, but least donated, article of clothing for homeless people?

New Hempstead Presbyterian Church is hoping to “Warm Up the Winter” by collecting winter hats, gloves and socks for our homeless neighbors. Remember the needy of Rockland County as you do your Christmas shopping this year.  Bring purchased items to Church in December.  They will be distributed to guests of Helping Hands and to clients of the Salvation Army Food Truck in Spring Valley.  Contact Laura Bidon with any questions.

Thanksgiving Baskets 2017

Help make Thanksgiving a little brighter for a needy neighbor.  New Hempstead Church has a long tradition of donating “Thanksgiving Baskets” to local families in need. Be sure to bring your food items to church on Sunday, November 19 so that we can distribute them before Thanksgiving.   You can also sponsor a basket, and we’ll do the shopping for you.  We’ll need volunteers on November 19 to shop and assemble the baskets.

Here’s the list:

  • Turkey
  • Stuffing mix
  • Boxed potatoes
  • Gravy
  • Canned vegetables (2-4 cans)
  • Canned sweet potatoes/yams
  • Corn bread mix
  • Cake/Brownie mix
  • Cake frosting
  • Applesauce
  • Canned cranberry sauce
  • Soup (2 cans)
  • Loaf of bread
