Last year the church collected over a hundred gloves and handed them out to the men and woman who reside in a homeless shelter in Peekskill.

Last year church members drove around the Newburgh area and handed out winter gear to people who were walking outside without proper clothing. The response was overwhelming; some recipients were brought to tears knowing that there were people who actually cared about them.

Church Pastor Tim Greco said, “It’s putting love into action, you can talk about the love of God all you want, but to show the love of God in a tangible way is quite a different thing, because it shows people that you care and they are not alone.”

This year the church’s goal is to double the amount of winter gear they gave out last year and the church is asking Philipstown residents for help.

Donations of new gloves, hats and scarves would be appreciated. You can call 203- 278-6225 for further information. Any help is greatly appreciated. Greco also invited anyone who would like to distribute the winter supplies to those in need with church members to give him a call. “It might change your life,” said Greco.
