Clothing and Food Donations
Many of the men who make their way to St. Christopher’s Inn come in with nothing—not even a coat to stay warm in the winter. This changes as soon as they arrive when all of their basic needs are met including clean clothing, nourishing food and safe shelter—the very definition of Franciscan Hospitality lived out by the Friars and extended to the men of the Inn.
Through donations over the years, the Friars and Staff of the Inn have assembled a “Clothing Room” with a goal of including all sizes and styles of clothing to meet any weather conditions so they are readily available for any men who are in need.
If you would like to contribute clothing for the men of St. Christopher’s Inn, donations are readily accepted every day at the Front Desk of the Inn. Clothes are regularly brought in by the bag-full, often by men and families whose lives have been touched by the work of the Friars of the Atonement and they are happily accepted and used with gratitude.
In the same way, food donations are gratefully accepted and will immediately make their way to the kitchen area where they will be worked in to the menu to supplement the nearly 200,000 meals that are served at St. Christopher’s Inn each year.
If you have questions about donating food or clothing to the Inn, please contact Christine Madera, Annual Giving Coordinator, at 845-424-2142 or email her at firstname.lastname@example.org.
