Thank you to all who have thoughtfully donated food and/or tax-deductible funds to the Islanders for Islanders initiative this summer. The shelves of the food resource room at the Union Chapel are beginning to fill and funds will support our year-round community in efforts spearheaded by the Island clergy.
Food collection bins are located at the FI Village Market as well as at the entrance to St. John’s, Our Lady of Grace, and Union Chapel (back door). PLEASE check food expiry dates before donating.
In conjunction with the Sanger Fund, Islanders for Islanders helps cover some winter fuel and utility bills. We are pleased to now offer island residents limited support for professional development opportunities in order to enhance possibilities for year-round income. In addition, Islanders continues to provide healthy snacks for our school children and take-out Senior Suppers.
If you are able to donate funds, kindly do so through your island church. Checks may also be written directly to Union Chapel with “Islanders for Islanders” in the memo line. (Mail to Union Chapel, PO Box 192, Fishers Island, NY 06390.)
On behalf of the Islanders for Islanders team, once again, thank you. We are deeply grateful for your support.
