DID YOU KNOW?   The FPCY Food Pantry has a matching grant that is critical to our ability to serve the hungry.  The grant will match up to $10,000 per year in monetary donations from the congregation or external individuals, and those gifts plus the match cover about 50% of our operations each year.
But so far for 2017 we have only received $5000 in contributions, putting our 2018 operations in jeopardy.  PLEASE consider a Food Pantry gift (we have lovely cards you can use) for birthdays, Thanksgiving, Christmas, or that year-end charity donation… and please don’t wait till December 31st !   You could give online (or with a note on the check memo line) now, and then pick up one of our beautiful cards during coffee hours later in the fall. 
And if you’re interested in helping out in person at the Food Pantry, check this!
