Bernie Clarke, a dedicated volunteer at the Lake Placid Ecumenical Food Pantry, spent his Monday morning helping to pack Thanksgiving bags as part of the pantry’s assembly line. The pantry, located at St. Agnes Church, is committed to providing food security to the community and its volunteers work tirelessly to make this possible.
Under the leadership of organizer Linda Young, the team worked for over an hour to fill around 275 bags with food that would be distributed throughout the day. The community’s support and dedication to helping those in need was evident in their efforts. The volunteers at the pantry understand that access to a Thanksgiving meal is not just about enjoying a festive meal with family and friends but also about ensuring that families have enough food on the table to last them until their next meal.
The Lake Placid Ecumenical Food Pantry has been serving the community for many years and its mission has remained constant – to provide food security for those in need. Volunteers like Bernie Clarke and Linda Young have been instrumental in making this happen by dedicating their time and resources towards helping others. Their commitment has made a significant impact on many families in the Lake Placid area and has helped them navigate difficult times during the holiday season.
