NYSTEC Commitment to New Scotland Community Food Pantry Continues During COVID-19 Crisis
Not being able to volunteer in-person at the New Scotland Community Food Pantry did not deter NYSTEC from continuing its efforts to help feed those in need in the Capital Region with an independent donation of pantry food items, especially now more than ever during the time of the COVID-19 crisis. Employee donations, complemented by a NYSTEC corporate donation, made it possible for a trio of determined NYSTECers to shop for and deliver the much needed pantry items on a recent afternoon in May.
The Pantry serves a diverse set of clients and may assist the single parent, the elderly, disabled or a family who is struggling financially. Whether their need is short or long-term, the goal is to provide basic nutrition and guide them towards being self-sufficient.
