April Newsletter

Happy Spring! It’s finally April, and that means warmer weather and longer days. This month, we’re giving away 111 carrots to continue our 111 year celebration. Why carrots? Well, they are 88% water, have only 25 calories per carrot, are full of Beta-Carotene, and can be prepared in so many different ways. Bags of carrots will be available during Outdoor Fridays – thanks to our collaboration with Comfort Food’s Fresh Food Collaborative!

Outdoor Fridays!

Come join us every Friday in April for our exciting Outdoor Fridays distribution event! From 10am-3pm (weather permitting), we will have a distribution area set up in the driveway and will have many items available for our clients and their families. These items have been generously donated by the community, and include adult and children’s clothing, infant aid items, personal care items, fresh produce, and more. Our original plan was to start Outdoor Fridays at the end of March, but due to rain we had to postpone. We held our first Outdoor Friday on April 2nd and it was a success!  By holding the distribution events outside, we are finally able to interact with our clients in a safe and socially distanced way. Masks are required at all times. We hope to see you on Friday!

Thank You!

We are grateful to Adirondack Foundation and Cloudsplitter Foundation for the Generous Acts grant award of $3000 for our Emergency Prescription Program. This grant is co-funded entirely by Cloudsplitter Foundation.  Great work is being done in The Adirondacks thanks to these foundations.

Just a reminder!

All financial, food, or personal care item assistance requests must be done over the phone. If anyone needs food, just give us a call. We can put a box of food together and place it on our distribution table outside our building at a convenient time to pick-up. We also require visitors to wear masks.

We understand this has been a trying time for all of us. Thank you for your cooperation with our guidelines.

Please give us a call if you are in need. Our number is (518) 793-0797.
