Food pantry recipients selected for ‘Cans In a Box’

Screen shot 2013-12-14 at 3.39.33 PMWe have selected three local food pantries — geographically situated to cover as much of our club’s “sphere of influence” as possible — as recipients of our “Cans In a Box” food drive.

They are:

• The CEO Food Pantry in Troy, which serves much of southern Rensselaer County.

• The Anchor pantry of Cooperative Christian Ministries of Schodack in Castleton.

• The New Hope for Life Ministries pantry in Nassau.

The drive, assisted by the East Greenbush YMCA and East Greenbush Public Library, resulted in collection of the equivalent of 80 bags of groceries.

“Our thanks to all who generously donated, some of them several times, to this resumption of a drive we held several years ago” said SRC President April L. Dowd. “In America, no one should go hungry, so we probably will repeat the drive next year.”
