Question: What Do You Do To Help the Homeless?

Maureen's Haven and John's Place are in full swing this time of year — do you volunteer to help the area's homeless?

Maureen's Haven and John's Place are two charitable organizations set up at local churches on a rotating schedule during the week to house, feed and counsel the area's homeless this time of year. Some take advantage of the programs, others choose to stay outdoors. 

How do you view the problem of homelessness on the North Fork? Do you think it's getting better or worse as the years go by and the economy weakens? Do you volunteer regularly or only occasionally at the shelters? Let us know your thoughts in the boxes below.

Maureen's Haven is dear to my heart. Every year, I collect coats, blankets or any warm item from my customers in return for a 20% discount on anything they buy at my annual Christmas Barn Sale. Small Holdings Farm is located on the Main Road in Aquebogue and we are still accepting donations. We just had our sale this past weekend and the people that came were all very generous, often bringing more than one item to donate. Thank you to all who donated, Sherron Francis
