WATERVLIET NY
REGIONAL FOOD BANK

Twenty-six people from three area Orthodox parishes teamed up for a fun and productive volunteer time at the Regional Food Bank on Saturday, 8 July 2017. Participating were parishioners from Saint George Antiochian Church (Albany NY), Christ the Savior Church (Ballston Lake NY), and Saint Basil’s Church (Watervliet NY) along with parish rector Archpriest Peter Olsen.

 

The team spent a hot summer morning sorting frozen food donated by area retailers and boxing it for the Food Bank to distribute to agencies who then serve those in need. Parishioner Marie Giokas commented, “We hope to do this activity again in the near future!”
