Food Security for our Neighbors

Meeting Essential Needs with Dignity


Morrow Church is partnering with MEND to help families in need this holiday season by providing presents and gift cards to make their Christmas' brighter. Purchase gifts for an entire family, partner with others to support a family, or donate gift cards to food stores, Target or Walmart. Your thoughtfulness will bring happiness and joy to a family this holiday season. Please see below for a list of families and suggested gifts (3 gifts per person is recommended). Choose the family or person you would like to help, type your name next to their name in the gifts column (you can choose one or all three) and deliver wrapped and labeled gifts and gift cards to Morrow's church office by December 17th. They will be picked up by MEND on December 18th. Reach out to Sheila Wolfinger at 646.325.5270 or if you have any questions. THANK YOU!
