College Holds Food Drive for Food Bank of CNY
SUNY Empire State College in partnership with the SUNY Center for Professional Development and SUNY Upstate Medical OASIS/Healthlink, all located at 6333 Rte 298, East Syracuse collected 356 pounds of food which was delivered to the Food Bank of CNY on Dec. 20, 2012.
Beyond East Syracuse, SUNY Empire State College also collected donation at its sites in Utica, Fort Drum, Watertown and Auburn.
“The Food Bank of CNY provides a great service to those among us with the least and I am happy that we were able to help them this holiday season” said Nikki Shrimpton, dean of the college’s Central New York Center. “We plan to continue holding food drives throughout the year as we know that families are in need year round.”
“We thank SUNY Empire State College for their continued support of the Food Bank of Central New York. The donated food will be distributed throughout the emergency food network in central and northern New York” said Lynn Hy, director of philanthropy at the Food Bank of CNY.
