Upcoming (Zoom) Meeting - Social Action Committee - August 4, 7:00 PM


Email the TI office for information  

 We are currently focusing on vaccination assistance and food security. There are many ways to assist, please contact us for more information!

Meeting topics for July 7 include:

  • Selection of a SATO secretary
  • Lend a hand event schedule (volunteer opportunity at warehouse in Latham)
  • Distribution of food to needy
  • Additional thoughts/items (email Eric or Jake with suggestions so they can be added to agenda and appropriate time budgeted)

Our first in-person event was a success!  Our second shift of Lend a hand was July 11!

 

On Sunday, May 16, a group of volunteers gathered for Lend a hand, the first in-person event scheduled by SATO this year.  These folks got together at the main warehouse of the Regional Food Bank of Northeastern NY to sort produce for families in need.

 

Many thanks to all who came out to
lend a hand!
