Members of The Congregational Church of Patchogue donated a substantial amount of toilet tissues for residents of Safe Harbor. The money that would have been spent on this item can now be used to provide counseling to the children who had to leave their own homes to be safe and are now residing at the shelter. What the members did is actually quite monumental. Special thanks to all the members and to Rev. Dwight Lee Wolter for their on-going support.
