First Presbyterian of Philipstown plans rehab

The First Presbyterian Church of Philipstown on Oct. 7 launched a capital campaign to renovate its community kitchen.

The kitchen, built in 1968, is used by the Cold Spring church’s nursery school, the Philipstown Food Pantry, to prepare food for Midnight Runs to assist the homeless in New York City, for the Peekskill Area Pastors’ Association monthly meal, community dinners and nonprofit groups such as the Boy Scouts and marchers for the Justice for Farmworkers Campaign.

The rehab will include a new floor, lighting, cabinets, dishwasher and stove and painting. The goal is $50,000, with work to commence in June. To contribute, visit and click on the “Capital Campaign” tab, or send a check to First Presbyterian at 10 Academy St., Cold Spring, NY 10516.
