Interfaith Coalition Donates Gift Bags, Household Cleaners

Interfaith Coalition Gift BasketsOn Friday, December 5th, volunteers with the Interfaith Coalition, a group of inter-linked religious congregations in Westchester, dropped off 60 beautifully packaged gift bags for HVCS clients. Gift bags contained such goodies as warm hats, scarves, ear muffs, and toys for children, and each is carefully labeled for an adult man, woman, boy or girl. (We love that Interfaith packed these items in gift bags rather than wrapping paper, so our care managers can ensure that each bag goes to an appropriate recipient.)

Another congregation held a Thanksgiving collection of laundry detergents and household cleansers. These items are very expensive for families with limited income (like the majority of our clients), and most food banks don’t stock cleansers at all. We are grateful that Interfaith heeded the call for these hard-to-find items for our neediest clients and their families.

If your group is interested in holding a food drive, toiletry drive, or household cleanser collection, please call us for assistance. If your company or group would like to adopt an HVCS client family or donate unwrapped gifts, just let us know and we can help spread the word!
