CHR’s MetroCard program provides the gift of free public transportation to our friends and neighbors in need. With the rising cost of public transportation, many New Yorkers struggle to get around. Whether it’s a formerly incarcerated person trying to get to a job interview or a senior trying to get to a doctor’s appointment, the gift of public transportation is transformative. New and partly used MetroCards can be placed into the donation boxes, as well as cash and checks. Donation boxes are located at the 5th Avenue entrance of Heavenly Rest (90th Street and 5th Avenue) The church’s select Outreach partners will be distributing the MetroCards. Donate online here
Partnership with Harlem Grown
Church of the Heavenly Rest’s nourishment efforts have recently expanded to a new partner, Harlem Grown. Harlem Grown provides mentoring to inner city youth through urban farming experience. Currently, they are working with 6 schools in Central and East Harlem. Tony Hillery, the founder of Harlem Grown, spoke on January 29th
during the Rector’s Forum; click here
