Thanks to all who helped once again make the Easter Distribution a success. Over the two Saturdays before Easter 190 families received either a turkey or a ham and all the fixings for a festive meal to share with their loved ones and 339 baskets were distributed to help make a joyful Easter morning. A special thanks to Corrine DeSantis and the families of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton who once again came through with an amazing amount of Easter Baskets and to Janice Reichert and the Lakeland Copper Beech Middle School Junior Honor Society who put together and delivered an additional 108 baskets. Could not have done it without you all.
Bowling to Strike Out Hunger
The Food Pantry at St. Mary’s Mohegan Lake is an interfaith community based not for profit service organization staffed by volunteers. Our mission is to provide supplemental food to families or individuals who live in the Mohegan Lake and greater Yorktown – Cortlandt area. We seek to provide nutritional, health and referral information to facilitate our patrons in moving beyond the need for emergency food.
The pantry is now registered with Amazon Smile. If you shop on-line and use Amazonsmile.amazon.com and name the pantry as your charity of choice 5% of your purchase will go to the pantry. So shop away and make a difference.
