On March 10 and March 11, the Mountain Top Parish Churches — Kaaterskill UMC, East Jewett UMC, Windham-Hensonville UMC, Lanesville UMC, Lexington/West Kill UMC and Ashland Community UMC, delivered 84 bags of food to individuals, couples and families in all of the Mountain Top communities. Thirty people worked together to make this happen and some were involved with more than one part of the organizing, picking up supplies and packing and delivering the bags. Support of this project came from All Souls Church, the Platte Cove Community, individual donations and the balance from some church funds. Thanks to Jim’s Great American for working with the organizers and thanks to the Platte Clove Community for making the cakes that were put in each bag. Many children also drew beautiful spring pictures for each bag. All the recipients were very appreciative of the gift and the visit. Thank you to the churches and community who made this Food Gift Project possible.
