The UMC In Mission to the World
submitted by Bonnie Hyatt
Another mission of the City Society is the United Methodist Center in Far Rockaway, an outreach program that provides food, clothing, referrals and counseling services to 125-150 people per day from the community. The mission was incorporated in 1982 to serve the Far Rockaway Community, especially those in need. The Mission has continued to be one of the major feeding programs in Queens. For thirty years the mission has served people in need by providing hospitality and spiritual, social and physical services which foster self-confidence and pride.
To date they have served:
7,307 pantry bags
Check out the video. I love that even with COVID they were able to hand the plate of food out at the door.
