Feed Our Vets and a food drive organized by a Mason program was featured in the Spring 2015 edition of The Empire State Mason Magazine.
“In the fall of 2014, Community Life Leader Laura Joseph, with the help of the community life team and Nurse Practitioner Val Yager, came up with an idea to support area veterans by conducting a food drive to benefit the Feed Our Vets pantry in downtown Utica. The idea was to have staff, residents and their families as well as the community bring in non perishable food and household items on Veterans Day. Director of Buildings and Grounds Brother Bob Buder, set Laura up with a large resident bus, the local NBC affiliate WKTV signed on to promote the effort, and the event was publicized throughout the campus.”
Thank you to the Masons, Laura Joseph, Val Yager, and everyone who made the event such a success.
