DONATE FOOD: Time to C.O.O.K.
Clean Out Our Kitchens. The Long Island Council of Churches
urges you to do some spring cleaningand to remember
your neighbors in need as you clean out your kitchen and pantry.
Do you have anything that needs to be cleaned out of your
cupboard? Fancy jellies and jams you received for the holidays
that you probably will never eat? Flavored coffee that is
not your cup of tea? Fruitcake tins deposited by the Ghost
of Christmas Past? Are you using them only as doorstops or
hockey pucks? Why not donate them instead to your local emergency
food pantry? The LICC and other emergency food pantries will
gladly take non-perishable food of any kindeven fruitcake.
Monetary donations are of course also welcomed. For further
information, please call 516-565-0290 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
