Charity Outreach is a small organization of parish members who have joined together to help their neighbors in need. Members visit the homes of families who have requested help in an effort to assess such requests and to assist them when possible. People seeking help should call the rectory (718-268-6251) during regular business hours. The receptionist can put you through to the Charity Outreach voice mailbox at ext. 43. A volunteer will then contact you to set up an appointment.
Several times a year, we arrange to have a truck from St. Vincent de Paul visit our parish on scheduled Sunday mornings to accept donations of gently used shoes and clothing. Dates for pickups are available here.
There is an ongoing vehicle donation program that allows parishes like ours to receive $50 to $100 for each car, truck or van donated. (Vehicles can be in any condition, running or not.) If you or someone you know—family member, friend or neighbor—have an old or neglected vehicle to dispose of, 718-491-2525 is the number to call.
You can also support and assist the work of Charity Outreach by placing a donation in one of their collection boxes located in the church.
If you know of a parishioner in need of assistance, or if you want to join Charity Outreach or learn more about additional ways to help, please call 718-268-6251 and a member of Charity Outreach will get in touch with you.
