Sponsor a Family for Thanksgiving

Fall is here and the St. Joseph’s Sponsor A Family Program for Thanksgiving needs your support.  Two years ago, the program changed from an actual food drive program to a virtual drive involving the collection of Stop and Shop gift cards and the response was incredible. So, organizers are continuing on that path for 2022. The goal remains the same: to provide assistance to neighbors at Our Lady of Loretto in Hempstead and Queen of the Most Holy Rosary in Roosevelt.  Families In these communities are especially challenged by the high cost of living, particularly the increasing price of food. Organizers will evenly disperse your gift card donations to each parish and they will distribute the cards to their families on an “as needed” basis.

If you would like to participate, please email Eileen Hoey at eileenbhoey@gmail.com and let her know what size family you would like to sponsor.  Suggested dollar amounts for S & S gift cards will be provided to you based on the family size you select. You will also receive detailed instructions for mailing OR delivering your gift cards to the St. Joseph’s Parish Social Ministry Office at 120 Fifth Street in Garden City. The delivery deadline is November 7.  If you have any questions prior to signing up, contact Pat DiMattia at dimattiared@aol.com.  Please accept thanks to all of you in advance and, especially to the faithful sponsors who support this program every year.
