The mission and work of the Service Team is to help those who are less fortunate.
Coordinator: Margaret Rolfe
Each year we try to reach out to as many people as possible and, with the help of our parishioners, we have managed to make a difference in the lives of those in need.
Collect donations of backpacks and school supplies for children in need to help them succeed both educationally and socially. Donations are managed and distributed by the Children’s Services Unit at the Tompkins County Department of Social Services.
Harvest Bag Program
Collect monetary donations which are used to purchase fresh fruits and vegetables for the residents of Titus Towers. The bags are packed and delivered with the help of ICC volunteers.
Giving Tree Program
We work with Birth Right to provide baby items for their outreach, and partner with Tompkins County Department of Social Services Home finding Unit to give gifts to teens that are in institutional residential placement facilities and for families where the children are being cared for by family members other than their parents.
Donations to Catholic Charities
Prepare and distribute Lenten bags for offering to Catholic Charites.
Meetings are the 3rd Thursday of the month at 6:15pm in the Parish Hall. Contact: Margaret Rolfe [email protected]
Managers: Denise Robinson and Ted Capogrossi
For 20 years, Immaculate Conception Parish has been helping the community through the Food Pantry.
The Pantry was opened nearly 20 years ago.
We are the only Food Pantry in Tompkins County that serves ALL people EVERY week.
We serve between 120-150 families per week.
We set up in the Parish Hall on Mondays.
We receive 1-2 pallets of food from the Southern Tier Food Bank.
Volunteers pick up groceries on Tuesday morning.
Food is distributed Tuesdays from 1:00-2:00pm.
