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; 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, and most recently MOMMAS House, a home for young mothers and their babies, offering compassionate shelter and education, often interrupted by pregnancy and poverty.
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.
