BENEFITING: CUBA CULTURAL CENTER
EVENT DATE: Oct 05, 2013
Over 1000 families have joined our young food pantry, which serves Allegany and Cattaraugus Counties, NY (two of the poorest counties in the country). We also run a soup kitchen and distribute clothing and household items to the community. While we've been able to acquire plenty of food to distribute, thanks to donations and grants, we continually strive to cover operational expenses such as rent and utilities. With heating season around the corner, this assistance would go a long way in helping us help struggling families.
