Community Outreach

wrap 10

We are so grateful to all who helped our neighbors in need!

Imagine you couldn’t provide Thanksgiving or Christmas for your family. Sadly, this was true for many local families this past holiday season. Fortunately, Moriches Community Center and generous community businesses and folks like you changed that!

The 2019 Holiday Outreach season was a huge success! Thanks to the enthusiastic help of students at Center Moriches Schools, and the financial generosity of local businesses, foundations, and community members who donated or adopted a child or family, MCC was able to provide food, toys, clothing, or other items during the holidays to 66 local families in need! Special thanks go to our wonderful Center Moriches Schools students who gathered and separated food, and our kind Santa’s Workshop shoppers and wrappers, and to all who so generously adopted a child or family. Every gift of time, talent or money contributed to the success of last year’s “Santa’s Workshop” holiday community outreach program, and the families who received were so thankful for your kindness and caring.

Holiday Outreach will begin in November. Here are ways you can “Help someone today” and show you care this year:

  • Make a secure donation at our website:
  • Donate nonperishable foods to Center Moriches students’ Thanksgiving food drives
  • Mail a check or prepaid gift card to Moriches Community Center, PO Box 22, Center Moriches, NY 11934 to help our shoppers purchase wish list items for the families
  • Adopt a child or family (email us to learn how at )
  • Help Moriches Community Center shop for gifts or wrap gifts for families
  • Donate a toy or other useful new item for distribution to the families
