The women parishioners of
Christ Church have formed an outreach group with the goal of sponsoring a
variety of fundraisers benefitting local charities. Distinct from our Grants Committee, this Guild’s
chosen ministry is to sponsor a few fundraising projects each year to help
smaller, perhaps less recognized charitable groups in our local
community. This ministry holds fundraisers such as pre-Thanksgiving Bake Sales, Winter Soup Sales, Cookie Sales, and more recently a very popular Pot Luck Supper/Trivia Night. Past recipients of the fundraising include The Hood
African Methodist Episcopal Zion Church in Oyster Bay (to procure a new sign for
their historic cemetery); Harmony Heights Residential and Day School in East Norwich, serving adolescent girls who have been
diagnosed with emotional and behavioral problems; and PeerPals.org in Oyster Bay, a charity that matches
preschool age children with disabilities with typically developing children in their
communities for one-on-one play dates.
If you would like to join forces with the ladies of St. Hilda’s Guild, please contact the office at 516-922-6377 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
