LIFEPlan CCO Staff Donate to Local Food Banks

LIFEPlan Staff Donate 665 Pounds of Food!

If you cannot feed a hundred people, then feed just one.– Mother Teresa 

According to Feeding America’s ‘Map the Meal Gap’ study released earlier this year, 1 in 10 people in New York face hunger and 1 in 7 are children. Thank you to the LIFEPlan staff who helped to make a difference in our communities by donating in a month long Food Drive at our office location across Central New York, Capital, Mohawk Valley, North Country, Hudson Valley, and Southern Tier regions of New York.  Together, our hub offices donated 665 lbs of non-perishable items to local food banks.

Heather Wasielewski, Executive Director of the Utica Food Bank shared her thanks as she picked up items from the Utica office.
