Volunteers at the Lake Placid Ecumenical Food Pantry, including Bernie Clarke and Linda Young, dedicated an hour on Monday morning to pack Thanksgiving bags for distribution. The pantry, located at St. Agnes Church, has been providing food security to the community for several years.
The volunteers worked tirelessly to ensure that families in need would have access to a Thanksgiving meal. Their efforts were supported by the community’s dedication to helping those less fortunate. The bags of food packed by the volunteers would make a significant difference for many families during the holiday season.
Linda Young, who organized the event, estimated that they would distribute around 275 bags of food over the course of the day. She expressed her gratitude to all the volunteers who participated in this important mission. “We are grateful for their time and commitment,” she said. “Without their help, we wouldn’t be able to provide this much-needed support.”
Bernie Clarke was proud to be part of such an important initiative. “It’s rewarding to see how our work can make a difference in people’s lives,” he said. “We may not be able to solve all their problems, but we can help them get through tough times like these.”
Overall, the Lake Placid Ecumenical Food Pantry’s mission is critical for providing food security and support to those in need. The dedication of volunteers like Bernie Clarke and Linda Young is instrumental in making this possible. Their work has made a significant impact on many families in the Lake Placid area and will continue to do so in the future.
