We run two clothing drives each year to donate much-needed clothing, shoes, pocketbooks and linens to the Long Island Council of Churches at their Riverhead outreach program.
CLC donated enough warm, winter clothing and food to fill 2 large SUVs and a trailer for the L.I. Council of Churches at their Riverhead facility. The volunteers there kept shaking their heads and smiling as more and more bags were brought in. In fact they received so much that they had to store over 20 bags in the bathroom until everything could be organized. Word spread in the community as the trailer was unloaded and people waited patiently for the 3 hours until the workers would be ready to start the distribution of newly donated winter clothing. Thank you to all who remembered those less fortunate and donated clothing and food and also the hard-working volunteers who sorted, folded and hauled the full bags to the trailer: Penny McKeever, Carole MacKnight, Faye Leung, Yvonne Ford, Joan & Roy Lundquist, Diana Keene, Janis Guarilia and Vicar Justin.
