March 2015 -- Volunteer opportunity at Freshkills

This in from Rachel Boeglin...Freshkills Park's volunteer program is growing, and we're excited to get folks involved!
We are looking for some enthusiastic volunteers who can commit to participating in several events this year. Those who are interested will have the chance to learn about the treasures of the park and its history, and be eligible to take on a leadership role in the volunteer program.

SNAP Shares Available

Community-supported agriculture programs pay their farmers up front so that they can buy seeds and tools. Although SNAP users can’t use food stamps to pay a lump sum in February for vegetables they’ll receive in June, Christ Church can pay the farmer now and accept repayment in food stamps during the delivery season from June to November. The number of shares is limited, however—the church can cover up to three full shares or six half shares. Please contact Susan Fowler for more information: 917 734-3746.
