St. Paraskevi Philoptochos Continues Tradition of Charitable Work

GREENLAWN, NY – The Ladies Philoptochos Society of St. Paraskevi Shrine Church in Greenlawn, Long Island continues their long tradition of charitable work. This year they sponsored two successful food drives of perishable and non-perishable food for people in need in the community. The items collected included meats, cheeses, eggs, milk, along with canned goods and even cleaning products. They collected hundreds of items for many local families. So far this season, food items were disbursed to St. Vincent De Paul Society in East Northport, Helping Hands Rescue Mission in Huntington, and to individual families in need.

The many generous parishioners of St. Paraskevi along with their friends and neighbors donated all the food. People were able to drive by and drop off their donations without getting out of their cars to respect the COVID protocols.

The food drives sponsored by the Ladies Philoptochos were so successful that they are organizing another so that the local charitable organizations can supplement their shelves for the coming winter. The current need is great and is expected to be even greater as many families continue to struggle with health issues, unemployment, and the resulting financial setbacks.
