UPDATES on “Aid for Margaretville, NY”

The waters may have receded but the need to help those impacted by the floods continues.  Holy Innocents Church, Halcottsville is working with organizations outside our community to provide sources of food and clothing. Holy Trinity Diocese of the Catholic Apostolic Church in North America, under the guidance of Father Michael Meyer donated a van of clothing and is now collecting food and winter clothing.

John Nicholson from Long Island, NY received donations of food from Steven Kienzle, Manager, Walmart, Middle Island, NY, and shoppers.  Thanks to   Councilman Dan Panico and Susan Riker, Running County Legislator for their help.  Nicholson’s family and friends have promised to continue the effort.  Holy Innocents is working with Ms. Linda Taylor, Principal, Margaretville Central School, the PTA and honor society to sponsor a “Shop Till You Drop” night at the school for people in the community.

Holy Innocents will sponsor an outdoor food pantry on Saturday October 1st, from 10:00 AM till 1:00 PM at 43141 Route 28, Arkville. All are Welcome.

Bishop Frank Betancourt, Fr. Mike Meyers and Father Dante Tarantini unload clothing.

John Nicholson, John Cordes, Bishop Frank and Father Dante unload food.


A Message from Fr. Mike to Dan:

Frank is in need of food and clothing, and Tony and I spoke.  Winter clothing is a particular need, but any kind of clothing, I am sure would be welcome.  If we can collect can and dry food goods, I am happy to take everything up to Margaretville.  I will be hopefully working with each of the three parishes to gather things.
