Organic Community Supported Agriculture

Would you like to eat pesticide-free, organically grown produce?  Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) is available at Midway from late spring until early fall for pick up on Thursdays, 12:30PM - 8:00PM.  The produce is delivered to Midway within hours of being picked at Golden Earthworm Farm.  Golden Earthworm is a local farm in Jamesport on the north fork of eastern Long Island.   In addition to your share of produce, your membership in this CSA program includes a farm festival, recipes, weekly newsletters, a blog from Farmer Matt, vegetable information, and a personal connection with the Farm.  Check out Golden Earthworm Farm online at www.goldenearthworm.com.   The sign up period is usually January through May, and space is limited.  For more information about the program, contact Linda Weiss at lindaw4181@gmail.com.

We Care Blankets

If you knit or crochet, join other Midway volunteers and make a blanket for a child undergoing cancer treatments.  The blankets are beautifully wrapped with a note from you and hand delivered to the children in hospitals.  Donate yarn, learn to crochet or knit, help a child keep warm inside and out.  Have fun and feel good knowing you’ve helped someone in need.  Our Crochet Club meets Mondays at 3:30PM (3:00PM during winter).  Everyone is welcome.  Contact Linda Weiss at lindaw4181@gmail.com or call 516-933-8280.                                                   

Pet Therapy for Caregivers

If you are a caregiver for a parent, spouse, sibling, child or anyone else, you know how hard it can be. Sometimes you just need to take a break, relax and take care of yourself for a short time.  Pet therapy has long been a source of comfort for people who need to take a few minutes to relax and breathe. If you are interested in joining a group of caregivers for conversation and dog petting please join us at Midway Jewish Center.  This will be an informal self-directed group for mutual support.  If you are interested, please contact Melanie Mayo at ditrainer@aol.com. Group meets on Wednesdays at 7PM.

TANS (Tikkun Alliance of the North Shore)

A consortium of Jewish congregations and community centers on Long Island which focus on projects designed to “repair the world” on the local level by addressing problems such as poverty, hunger and the environment. Through their “From Our Garden to Your Table” program, donations of excess fruit and vegetables from your gardens may be made to people in need.  Perishable food items from a celebration or untouched food from a shiva house may be donated.  TANS also sponsors an annual Coat & Clothing Drive collecting coats and winter clothing before November 13 to distribute to those in need.  The January Food Drive distributes food and fresh produce to the Wyandanch community (volunteers are needed).  The Annual Prom Dress Drive takes place in April and prom dresses, accessories and new, unused make-up are collected to be given to High School girls to help make their proms memorable. Volunteers and donations are needed in order to continue helping those in need.  Contact Eleanor Blackman at 516-364-1235 or Nancy Kraut at nancykraut@aol.com.
