OutreachOutreach Committee

Reaching Out to Our Neighbors in Need
The Outreach Committee brings before the parish the needs of people outside the congregation in the local community, on deanery and diocesan levels, as well as throughout the Church and the world. The committee recommends opportunities for service through parishioners giving time, talent and treasure.

Annual Grant: Through a process of education and fundraisers, we present a financial grant (and hands on support when possible) to assist an organization's efforts. Our 2017 grant recipient is North Brooklyn Angels food truck, a mobile soup kitchen serving lunch at five sites around North Brooklyn. The truck currently serves about 500 meals per week, but is hoping to expand to 1000 meals with our help. In addition to feeding people, the truck’s office area will furnish space for local groups to provide health services, housing counseling, and a new opportunity to showcase the great social justice programming that exists in the community.

Please be generous in your support of this new and vital program that addresses the ongoing challenge of hunger in our area.

Queens Community House: On the first Sunday of the month, Saint Luke's stocks the emergency food panty to benefit women and children who are victims of domestic abuse. In addition, each December we contribute holiday presents for children in need.

Forest Hills Interfaith Food Drive: One weekend each summer people of various faith traditions work together staffing booths at area grocery stores for the benefit of hungry people throughout Queens.

Episcopal Charities of Long Island: Our support of Camp DeWolfe is Saint Luke's response to our diocesan ministries of outreach and care serving children and youth, families and seniors.

Episcopal Relief and Development: Saint Luke's encourages support through seasonal program efforts as well as when events around the world call for an immediate response.


Food Drive



The Annual Forest Hills Interfaith Food Drive

We collected 27 boxes of non-perishable food items and ~ $156 for the Food Pantry of the Queens Federation of Churches, thanks to our very dedicated volunteers of all ages.

St. Luke’s has an ongoing relationship with the Queens Community House (www.queenscommunityhouse.org) to support their programs for struggling families and senior citizens in our community. Located on 63rd Drive, the Community House is a settlement house that runs after-school programs, a nursery school, a senior center, and other essential services. Our partnership includes stocking their food pantry and providing holiday gifts for children through our Jesse Tree project.

As a local Citymeals-on-Wheels provider, the Forest Hills Community House is looking for volunteer Friendly Visitors to provide homebound older adults in our community with companionship. Friendly Visitors become a trusted friend with whom the older adult can share life stories and memories. We are looking for warm and caring people who are able to commit once a week for 1-2 hours. Anyone interested should contact Dennis Redmond at dredmond@fhch.org or 718-592-5757 x223.
