The pandemic has hit immigrants very hard. Those with no safety net have lost work or, to feed their families, are forced to go to work, risking contracting and spreading the virus. In April, we began a food relief program to support about 200 families each week. Many of our immigrant volunteers are unemployed but committed to helping their community.
Unfortunately, our source of food is no longer able to provide us with anything. Therefore we greatly need financial contributions to continue to provide food relief. Any size gift helps! (Donations are tax deductible through our fiscal sponsor, New Hempstead Presbyterian Church.)
Be sure to enter your contribution in the box labeled “Proyecto Faro” when you donate online and add “Food Program” in the notes section. Select a one-time gift or a recurring donation.
Checks made out to New Hempstead Presbyterian Church with “Proyecto Faro Food Program” in the memo can be mailed to:

We also need volunteers to solicit food donations from markets to do food drives in their networks. Please be in touch if you can help: firstname.lastname@example.org
Together, we can transform Rockland into a community where all residents are safe and have their needs met.
