Resources for Islanders

hands-reaching150x150Responding to the needs of our winter population, the Islanders for Islanders Fund supports an increasing number of projects for the benefit of the year-round population.

In cooperation with the Sanger Fund, Islanders helps cover winter fuel and utility bills. We are pleased to now offer island residents limited support for professional development opportunities in order to enhance possibilities for year-round income. In addition, Islanders continues to provide healthy snacks for our school children and take-out Senior Suppers. We maintain a small food resource room of non-perishables and funds for purchasing fresh food at the Village Market.

Islanders for Islanders is a collaboration of the four churches of Fishers Island. Please do not hesitate to contact Rev. Candace Whitman for a confidential conversation regarding your need. To reach Candy, please call 631-788-7029 and leave your name and number if the machine picks up. You may also email her at candy@fiunionchapel.org. To “shop our shelves,” please come to Union Chapel during office hours or make an appointment with Candy or the church office (631-788-7898).

We are very grateful to the generosity of our donors who are making year-round life more sustainable for our full time residents. To donate food fall, winter, and spring, please call Candy (contact information above) about needs and procedures for donation. In summer, bins are placed around town. For financial donations, kindly send your check to Union Chapel with “Islanders for Islanders” in the memo line. Checks may be mailed to Union Chapel, PO Box 192, Fishers Island, NY 06390.

Again, on behalf of the Fund and our community, thank you!
