21 Dec Providing Items for Families in Need Throughout New York
Organization: Faith Outreach Ministries INC.
Lives Impacted: 50
Faith Outreach Ministries INC., located in Port Washington, NY, is a nonprofit organization that provides personal items for children and adults living in homeless or low-income situations. Over the years we have been providing families with the resources that they need to create a happy, healthy life. We’ve discovered the scarcity of resources and lack of services available within the community and we hope to bridge the gap between the economically deficient and the financially functional programs in Port Washington. We have a vision to empower the needy and underprivileged and to integrate them into mainstream society, equipped with the necessities of life.
Through our mission, we strive to let people know that there is a helping hand available out there and a heart that is filled with passion to allow children to experience hope in a time of despair. We want people to know that we are spreading our mission and touching the lives of others by changing lives one day at a time.
Throughout the year we host donation drives for families and singles in the community, giving back personal items and needed household goods. Thanks to this donation, we were able to give essential items they require in their daily living. They were given shampoo, water shoes, cover-ups for swimming, brushes, conditioner, and baby wash and more. Many of the recipients were so grateful because some these items can be very pricey. One of the families that came to the drive was homeless and running low on toiletry items. The family included a young toddler and a newborn baby. They were beyond relieved and grateful to receive shampoo, baby wash, water shoes and a brush, which provided them the means necessary to take care of basic personal hygiene. Thank you Good360 for everything that you do to help us impact our community.
