FPCP Capital Campaign: Phase III
What's Cooking in the Kitchen?
Your donations are greatly appreciated, and tax-deductible to the fullest extent allowed by law.
FPCP successfully completed the first two phases of our Capital Campaign, making critical repairs and improvements to our very beautiful, very historic, and very busy little church!
In early 2018, FPCP community members had the opportunity to vote for what they considered to be the most important projects that still remain on our big "to-do" list. A major rehab for our church kitchen was the overwhelming favorite! That's why Phase III of our Capital Campaign is called: What's Cooking In the Kitchen?
The Cap Campaign Committee has set a fundraising goal of $25,000 for the work. Committee members will obtain quotes on the rehab work, which would include: major cleaning, new flooring, refinishing or replacement of metal cabinets, new lighting, cleaning the stove exhaust, a new roll-down fire screen and new dishwasher.
This is an important project because our church kitchen is a COMMUNITY KITCHEN. It is used every day of the week to support food preparation for important ongoing mission and outreach programs including: the Philipstown Food Pantry; the Community Nursery School; PAPA (Peekskill Area Pastors' Association) monthly soup-kitchen meal preparation; and Midnight Run food preparation for the homeless. Our kitchen is regularly used by diverse community groups ranging from Girl Scouts to local activists marching for housing, for farm workers, and for social justice. And of course we use our little kitchen week after week for our church coffee hours, community and congregational meals, weddings, holidays, receptions, concerts, and other milestone celebrations in the life of our church and community.
