Clothing Distribution – New Dorp Moravian Church

We collect clean, new, or gently used clothing to be distributed to our sister church, Vanderbilt Moravian, and other families in need throughout the year. Please donate heavy winter wear in fall and winter, and light summer clothing in spring and summer as our space is limited.

Volunteers are needed for sorting and folding.

Thanksgiving and Christmas Holiday Baskets – New Dorp Moravian Church

Every fall, New Dorp Moravian Church coordinates the collection of a variety of food items to be placed into Thanksgiving and Christmas Holiday Baskets. Food donations of everything holiday related are assembled, and delivered, to help make Thanksgiving and Christmas a special time for families in need.

Monetary donations toward the Baskets also greatly appreciated.

Last year, we again filled over 100 baskets for others in need. We primarily assist families who’s names have been provided. This year we hope to update and expand our list of families who are in need. If you know anyone who is food insecure, please call the church office with names, addresses, and contact information.

Many thanks to everyone for your generous donations to this worthy ministry of our Church.
