Our once-modest “Cans In a Box” drive to aid small, local food pantries during the Christmas holiday season is growing.
SRC member Patrick Ciraulo and his staff at the East Greenbush YMCA planned to hold their own food drive and wanted to join in the SRC push. Pat said the East Greenbush Public Library also would like to be involved, and that the Y could provide volunteers to help deliver the foods in December.
SRC President April Dowd and President-elect Bill Dowd, who have been running the SRC effort, agreed that a coordinated three-entity food drive had the potential for better results. In addition, such an effort would be in line with our 2013-14 goal of expanding our club’s sphere of influence in the community at large.
