We find ourselves busy with holiday preparations, but I hope you will remember that Pasta and the Word is a constant - Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall, we continue to serve our brothers and sisters in Wyandanch on the 4th Saturday of the month. If you've been away for a while, welcome home. If you have friends or family who you think might be interested, please invite them. Personally, I always love to see our college students help out on Thanksgiving weekend. It is a wonderful opportunity to re-connect to Abiding Presence and share their stories about college.
I'm excited to share that we will distribute coats and warm outerwear throughout the entire month of December (heavy duty sweatshirts - with and without hoodies). Please share your clean, gently worn donations with those in need. There is a collection bin in the coat closet located in the narthex of the church.
Of course, we are primarily in need of you - your food donations and your time. If you are able to volunteer onsite or provide a tray of pasta or meatballs or brown bag lunches, please let us know. Here is the wish list of items needed for this meal:
Trays of cooked pasta
Fresh or frozen meatballs
Forks, knives and spoons
Jarred pasta sauce
Boxes of pasta
(ziti, penne or farfalle type - please no long spaghetti or linguine)
Salad fixins' - including lettuce, tomatoes, cucumbers, croutons
Complete brown bag lunch - includes sandwich, snack, fruit and water.
