To Benefit Island Harvest - A Food Bank for Long Island
“Be the Light and Hope for God’s People”

Dear Grace Families:

Grace Episcopal Church and School is sponsoring a food drive during Advent (Dec. 3-24) to benefit Island Harvest.  

We all know that food prices are very high, but please count your blessings and take up the challenge to fill up a box for a family less fortunate than yours with the suggested items on the attached page.   While you are working on your family box, ask your relatives, neighbors, and friends to join us in our efforts to support Island Harvest and the people they serve across Long Island.

All donations - full boxes, partial boxes, a few items, etc., - are gratefully accepted.

Please be sure your packages are not open or expired.

Mark your calendar for Friday, December 22 to drop off your donation between 8 am and 1 pm in the southwest corner of the parking lot.

If you cannot drop off December 22, please see Richie, me or Mike Matrigliano,and we will make other arrangements.

Thank you for your help and generosity,

Debi & Richie Csajko
