Once again, we had a great three months of community service. We bought and distributed school supplies to various places in Nassau and Suffolk Counties. Merrick Kiwanis once again collected school supplies at CVS; they were then given to MWI, as a thank you for our helping their organization with gift wrapping last December. This year we had new members helping us to distribute the school supplies: Marion Kraskow, Marcia Steele, Amy Neidle and Phyllis Biernick, whose daughter and grandsons assisted as well.
Other noteworthy community services we performed were:
Marion Kraskow volunteered at NY Blood Sercives and she also recruited other members to participate with them.
We presented blankets to hospitals, veterans and homes for the disabled. The knitting was fabulous. Presently, we are collecting hats and scarves to give out in November. We hope it will be cool by that time.
There is a group volunteering at A. Holly Patterson.
We collected and delivered new children's books for a group called Book Fairies.
We collected food for Freeport Inn's Kosher Food Pantry, St Hugh of Lincoln Church as well as for other sites.
There are many places to which we reach out for different ocmmunity services. If you are interested in participating and helping, please contact Community Service through Cloria Cohen, Marion Kraskow, Sandy Minkoff or Marcia Steele. All your support is greatly appreciated.
