August Newsletter

Happy August! Can you believe it’s the last full month of summer already? During the month of July, we provided food and essential personal items in more than 129 different cases helping families and individuals in need. Our food pantry is open Monday through Friday from 9-3. If you or someone you know is in need of food, please give us a call to schedule a pick up.

Please note: Our food pantry will be closed the week of August 21st during the Feet First program.

Feet First
Our annual program, Feet First, is approaching quickly! Feet First provides help to purchase new school shoes for eligible children that are attending Kindergarten through high school in the fall of 2023. This year, call-ins start August 14, 2023 at 9:00 am. 518-793-0797. We will take your application over the phone, and set you up with an appointment for pick up. Eligible families are enrolled in an assistance program such as SNAP, WIC, SSI etc. Documents and verification of income and custody will be required to be submitted. Have paper and pen ready to write down appointment time and documents to submit. Appointments will be made for the week of August 21, 2023.

When you call, please talk to a staff member. Do not leave a message. Phone lines will be busy but please be patient and keep trying. Let’s help kids put their best foot forward when going back to school!

August is a busy month at Family Service Association, and we’ll only be able to hold Outdoor Fridays for part of the month. There will be no Outdoor Fridays event on 8/18 or 8/25 due to our Feet First program. But you still have several weeks before that happens so stop by Fridays 10-2 and check out what items are available. Please make sure to check our Facebook page before heading out for any weather related closings.
