BHA Issues Last Minute Appeal for Pies

This in from the Brooklyn Heights Association:

Dear Friends: In a last minute appeal, we hope that you will consider making (or buying) a pie for the Thanksgiving Dinner served to elderly citizens at Grace Church. It is organized by Heights and Hills, a provider of supportive services to community dwelling older adults in Brooklyn.

The dinner is open to senior citizens, regardless of their economic status. It is an annual Brooklyn Heights tradition, held at Grace Church at NOON on Thanksgiving Day. A full dinner (cooked and donated by the Cobble Hill Health Center) will be served at the church to 250 people, and 75 meals will be delivered to frail, homebound elderly. They need more pies!

If you can either bake or buy a pie (apple, pumpkin, pecan, etc.) and deliver it to Grace Church before noon on Thursday, it will be warmly appreciated.

    Can pies be dropped off at the church today? We are leaving town tonight but happy to help….

  • Claude Scales

    Call the church office at 718-624-1850. It should be no problem.

    I just purchased 3 pies at Gristede’s. Said they were baked in the store for $3.99.
    Will deliver them tomorrow before we head out for the day.

    Call was a false alarm as usual. There was so much food and pies people were given doggie bags and whole pies to take home.

  • Willow St. Neighbor

    I would rather they have too much food than too little.

    According to The Rev. Steve Muncie, Rector of Grace, “We always try to make sure everyone gets a pie to take home.”

    God Bless the Rev. Muncie. How nice for the elderly to be able to take home a pie. Maybe they will share it with friends over a cup of coffee or tea the day after Thanksgiving. Maybe they will enjoy it alone.
    I am just happy that they will “enjoy”!
