Demand at a food pantry has doubled but donations have not

Cynthia Sangster, a church volunteer, called in a panic. The food pantry at St. Mark’s Church in Jackson Heights, Queens usually hands out 100 grocery bags to the needy on the second Saturday of every month. Last month it topped 200. To meet the rush for this upcoming weekend, she asked donations be shipped or dropped off to St. Marks; 33-50 82nd St. Jackson Heights, NY 11372. Specifically the following items:

cereal
soups
pasta
rice
fresh black beans (preferred to canned)
tea bags
coffee
baby food
soaps
paper towels
