Every other month, members of the Plainview-Old Bethpage Interfaith Clergy Council comes together in service to those in need.
Recently, volunteers from in Plainview joined with volunteers from other area congregations, including members of in Old Bethpage, to make peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for the Mary Brennan Kitchen at The INN. The Hempstead-based non-profit group addresses hunger and homelessness on Long Island by providing food, shelter, long-term housing and support services.
St. Pius X members worked as part of a team that made more than 500 sandwiches, which were delivered the next day. The project is known as “Helping Hands.”
Regular participants in the program are members of the Young Vincentians of St. Pius X, an offshoot of the St. Vincent DePaul Society, an international organization dedicated to community service.
