Our Ministry with Them
We are committed to supporting the work of Cameron Community Ministries, an Urban Outreach Community Center located in the Lyell-Otis Neighborhood of Rochester, NY.
Cameron offers programs including:
- Youth after-school and summer programs,
- A Teen Center,
- Peace Garden,
- A free hot meal program that serves lunch daily,
- An emergency food pantry,
- A clothing house that services community members in need of clothing and housewares.
Who? What? and Where?
IPC regularly receives information from Cameron about evolving needs for volunteers, material donations, financial donations, changes in program operations, etc.
There are opportunities for our volunteers to engage in ways to support the Cameron community that align with their skill set and desire to serve. We often organize an event for our whole congregation to join in support of Cameron. Many individual volunteer opportunities are also available.
