Dear Editor: I would like to take this opportunity to thank those folk responsible for the St. Vincent de Paul car donation program. Through their diligence and proactive placement of an advertising van in our parking lot (right along the Van Wyck Expy.), we have been the recipient of a number of auto donations from parishioners and passers-by.
The dedication and hard work of the SVdP auto team has been a blessing to us as we have then been able to use these charitable funds to support our work in food pantry assistance to those most in need.
I encourage other parishes in our busy, car-driven city to take advantage of the off-road donations that can come to assist those in need.
FATHER MICHAEL LYNCH
