Opportunities for Mission
Soup Kitchen
Third Tuesday of the Month

Soup Kitchen help needed!

On the third Tuesday of each month (except July and August)  Hitchcock women prepare a meal for 150 folks and take it up to Grace Church in White Plains.   Preparations start at 9:00 AM in the kitchen, and we are usually through by 10:15 AM.  This is a "hands on" opportunity, so come join!  

Monday Mornings

Every Monday morning, the Thrift Shop is open from 10 AM until 12:30 PM! Why not stop by and browse the racks of clothing for all ages, handbags, lovely china and glassware, toys and much, much more? We also hold two big Tag Sales a year, one in the fall and one in the spring. 

The profits from the sale of merchandise are given out to organizations that support women and children, both here and abroad. At our Fall Happening we raised $4,200, which we divided between Midnight Run and El Centro Hispano. Just from our Monday Morning operations we were able to write two checks, each for $1000, to Beyond Borders and Presbyterian Disaster Assistance. Beyond Borders is on the ground in Haiti helping villages rebuild from the devastation of Hurricane Matthew. PDA is working with communities in the southeastern United States as they too rebuild after Matthew. 

So, please visit the shop - you will find bargains and treasures - and help support a very important mission of PW. And if you would like to get involved, we are ALWAYS looking for extra hands to help sort and price - just show up and we will put you to work!! SEE YOU ON MONDAY MORNING!
