Drive Through Food Pantry - September 29 at Milton Town Hall.
The next community food distribution is on September 29, 2020 starting at 9am at the Milton Town Hall. All families/community members are invited to enter the parking lot off of Geyser Road and remain in their cars while volunteers load FREE food/supplies into their car.
Thanks to the Regional Food Bank, an anticipated 18,000 pounds of food will be distributed at the event, including fresh produce, dairy, frozen meats and non-perishable food items. BSNB volunteers will welcome attendees and load boxes of food into each vehicle’s trunk.
The event is open to the public and free of charge. Patrons will receive food on a first-come, first-served basis, while supplies last. All volunteers will follow CDC guidelines by wearing appropriate masks and gloves while actively practicing social distancing. Sponsored by the Regional Food Bank and Ballston Spa National Bank, the FREE food give away will start at 9:00am and continue while supplies last.
“The Food Bank has been a much-needed resource for people impacted financially by COVID-19,” stated Christopher R. Dowd, BSNB president and CEO. “Since March, we’ve supported the Food Bank’s efforts with volunteering as well as by contributing company donations of $25,000 and raising $5,000 more in community contributions. Because the need still exists, we’ve extended our campaign and will match up to another $5,000 in community donations. We ask that you please consider joining us by contributing to this worthy cause.”
Members of the public wishing to support the Regional Food Bank under BSNB’s matching campaign may donate directly via the Regional Food Bank’s donation site and selecting ‘BSNB Matching Campaign’ as the donation designation. Additionally, checks may be made payable to the Regional Food Bank of Northeastern New York and dropped off at any BSNB banking location or mailed to BSNB, ATTN: Regional Food Bank Matching Campaign, PO Box 70, Ballston Spa, NY 12020.
