In this season of rebirth and renewal, we have the opportunity to support the Easter Offering. This year, the offering will be split between Caring for the Hungry and Homeless of Peekskill (which supports the Jan Peek House, along with other services) and the Garden of Hope community garden.
The Jan Peek House is a 24-hour, 365-days a year shelter for single adult men and women. The shelter provides supportive case management services for clients to develop an independent living plan that focuses on obtaining housing and necessary supportive services.
The Garden of Hope is an interfaith initiative which provides produce for local food pantries, including our pantry right here at FPCY, and an opportunity for many to give back to their community. This spring, the Garden is continuing to ‘take root’ in a brand-new location at Willow Park off of Curry Street thanks to a partnership between the Garden and the Town of Yorktown.
Thank you for your support of both of these community organizations working for the renewal of human dignity and the earth! Give online, or with a check marked “Easter.”
