Seventy-five to 150 people daily receive hot breakfasts and lunches seven days a week from our kitchen. About 80 to 150 families each month receive a three-day supply of groceries from our pantry and bread and pastries are distributed to many more people each month. A fresh food distribution occurs monthly through the Food Bank of Central NY.
About 30 students come to our building weekly after school to do homework, use computers, and participate in crafts and games. Additionally, our building is used for a variety of instructional programs, recreation, and community meetings.
Anyone wishing to know more about the Army or offer volunteer service may call 343-6491 or stop at the office at 73 W. Second St. There are opportunities throughout the year for individuals, families, and organizations, but especially to stand with the familiar kettles at Christmastime.
