Mr. Rogers encourages us in challenging times to look for the helpers. Below are a few ways you can join in helping our community in the weeks ahead. As we all practice physical distancing and social solidarity, the most direct way to support non-profit organizations is through monetary donations. Whether or not you are able to give financially at this time, we invite you to pray for the helpers in our world and to make an extra phone call each week checking in on friends and neighbors.

Donations to Nassau Presbyterian’s Hunger Offering are always appreciated as well.
We are committed to receiving the hunger offering until all are fed. The Hunger Offering is distributed locally, nationally, and internationally through Send Hunger Packing Princeton, HomeFront, Trenton Area Soup Kitchen, the Presbyterian Hunger Program, and the Uniting Reformed Church in Stellenbosch, South Africa.
Through your generosity, two additional partners have been added to the hunger offering recipients—Arm in Arm and Capital YMCA in Trenton. The Mission & Outreach Committee are including all seven organizations in the hunger offering as long as we can maintain average giving to our five original hunger partners.
You may donate electronically online (select the Hunger Fund): My Nassau
or by texting NASSAU Hunger to 73256.
Thank you for all the ways, small and large, you are helping in response to COVID-19.
