BENEFITING: CUBA CULTURAL CENTER

EVENT: George Eastman House Photo Finish 5K 2014

EVENT DATE: Sep 27, 2014

THE STORY:

Over 1000 families have joined our food pantry, which serves Allegany and Cattaraugus Counties, NY (among the most economically challenged counties in the country). We also run a soup kitchen and distribute clothing and household items to the community. Another program (a 29-week, faith-based series) helps individuals overcome life trauma, while our Summer Bicycle Program distributes bikes to children whose families cannot afford them. While we've been able to fund our programming, thanks to a variety of donations and grants, we continually strive to cover operational expenses. 

The Center regularly helps families, such as Tonia's.  A single mother of two, she relies on the food pantry to help feed her growing boys.  It also helps John, a single retiree, who has no central heat nor water, and only minimal electricity. He does receive SNAP benefits, and looks forward each month to the day when those benefits come in. The Center's food pantry provides John with “additional nutrition and eases the financial strain of purchasing groceries.” He describes the Center as being “very much like a social gathering, a bringing together of community.” John feels this is “very healthy and healing for all involved.”

Our annual 5K to Feed Families participation in the George Eastman Photofinish 5K will help us raise value operational support funding. Thank you for helping us help others!
