May 19: Change The World Day

Once again, young adults in our Project Stewardship program will be participating in Change the World Day with other community members at The Garden at St. Francis where they Grow to Give… All are welcome to spend time in nature and reconnect!

The garden began by donating fresh organic produce to The Long Island Council of Churches Food Pantry in Freeport, NY and has in the 9th season, extended feeding the hungry in our midst by supporting the Freeport INN, the food pantry at St. Frances de Chantel in Wantagh and the Bellmore/Merrick Central High School District’s, Community Cupboard as well as local families and individuals.

Collaboration on Change the World Day includes garden beautification projects guided by Garden Co-Chair, Susan Salem and hands-on, light construction projects led by Malcolm Hall of the Bellmore United Methodist Church. Christine Keller will provide planting and other activities for our children/young adults and all who are interested! A variety of tasks will be available for volunteers to pursue while we enjoy community bonding, skill building and outdoor time together! Come for an hour or for the entire afternoon!

Friends and family members are welcome to participate! Refreshments served. Feel free to bring a picnic lunch and folding chairs and relax in the garden.

RAINDATE: Sunday, June 9th, 1-4pm.
