Operation Feed the Front!
Mission: Get nutritious meals to front-line medical staff and hospital workers.
Purpose: To keep our heroic front-line workers energized and uplifted in the face of extraordinary challenges.
We are streamlining communications with local hospitals, providing meals when and how they need them while letting local chefs do what they do best. We provide nutritious high-quality food during shift changes at hospitals throughout our area. Poorer, underserved hospitals, like St. John’s in Far Rockaway will be prioritized. Over the coming weeks, we seek to support field hospitals as well as other established hospitals and community centers.
How can you help? Donate and Promote on Social Media! Through the generosity of club boards, managers, chefs and cooks, we are able to provide meals at very low cost on a large scale. You can sponsor a meal for 100 hospital staff for $500, Or contribute at any level you are able!
Interfaith Nutrition Network
The Cathedral of the Incarnation supports The INN (Interfaith Nutrition Network) in service, awareness and fundraising through serving meals at the Mary Brennan INN soup kitchen in Hempstead, collecting toiletry "Easter Baskets" in spring and backpacks and school supplies in the fall; and creating fundraising awareness events benefiting the guests of The INN.
Much in the Christian tradition centers around food: hospitality, the Eucharist, fellowship and feeding those in need. From these traditions, a new Cathedral ministry effort was born.
Holiday Diaper Drive
One of our parishioners started a drive to collect diapers and baby wipes for mothers in need at The INN. Visit tinyurl.com/INNcarnationDiaperDrive2019 to contribute!
INNcarnation Days of Service
The cathedral sends 10 volunteers to serve at The INN on the second Wednesday of every month. Volunteers serve from 8am to 2pm. To sign up, contact Deacon Denise at firstname.lastname@example.org
"INNcarnation" Fundraising Events:
The Cathedral partners with local restaurants each January to raise money for The INN in a special event called "Ring INN the New Year". Following an Epiphany concert from the Cathedral Choirs, stroll the candlelit path to See House for a cocktail party with hors d'oeuvres amd live music.
Our next event is January 10, 2021.
