Food drive deliveries near the final day

April & Food
Club President April Dowd arranges the latest load of donated non-perishable food items the club has been collecting, supported by the East Greenbush YMCA and East Greenbush Public Library.

Before we ring in the New Year, this joint effort will have resulted in hundreds of items being delivered to a trio of smaller food pantries in Rensselaer County that often are overlooked, particularly during the holiday season when the larger pantries get the lion’s share of attention and donations.

The drive is the second of four quarter-long service projects the club is holding in thre 2013-14 Rotary Year. The first was the book drive that collected in more than 600 new and like-new books for children and adults that have formed the core of the library at the new Unity House family services building in Troy.
