September Newsletter

Happy September!
During the month of August, we provided food and essential personal items in more than 115 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.

Feet First
We held our Feet First program during August, and it was a great success! This year we helped more than 400 children start the new school year with their best foot forward! Check out these smiling faces, all ready to start the school year. Thank you to everyone who gave their support to this program. We couldn’t have done it without you.





Thank You, Travelers!
Many thanks to Travelers for running a very successful diaper drive during August! The diapers and wipes that we received will really make quite an impact in many of our families’ lives. Thank you for your support!


Adopt A Family
Our annual Adopt A Family Christmas program is almost here. Phone calls to make an interview appointment will be accepted starting Tuesday, October 10, 2022 at 9:00 am. We are expecting a high volume of calls so please be patient and keep trying. Please do not use any auto-dialer apps or try to call more than once every couple of minutes. That will tie up the phone lines and cause unnecessary delays. We will accept calls until our list fills. You must speak with a person, do not leave a message. We are doing in-person interviews and will require specific documentation. Make careful notes of the instructions and documents required. (518) 793-0797.

If you’re looking for an opportunity to give back this holiday season, consider adopting a family this year! The generosity and support of our sponsors make the Adopt A Family program possible. If you are interested in becoming a sponsor this year, reach out to us for more information.

Outdoor Fridays
We had to miss a couple of Fridays in August due to Feet First, but now that it’s September, we’re back! Every Friday from 10-2, weather permitting, we’ll be set up outside for Outdoor Fridays. Please double check for weather related closings on our Facebook page before you come. We will not hold the event if it rains.

We’re Here To Help
We are available to assist in any way we can, either through providing help or connecting you with another resource that may be better equipped to assist you. Not sure who to call about a situation? Call us, and we’ll help you figure out who the proper contact would be.

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