NYSTEC Donates to the Schenectady City Mission to Help Feed the Homeless on Thanksgiving

On Sunday, November 19th, a small team of NYSTEC shoppers bought and delivered a long list of Thanksgiving groceries for the Family Life Center for Women and Children, part of the City Mission of Schenectady. These groceries will allow the 15 women and 7 children currently residing at the Family Life Center to prepare and celebrate their own holiday meal.

The NYSTEC team filled 4 carts that included all of the usual Thanksgiving food items, plus some specific items the residents requested as part of their holiday traditions.

The City Mission helps people who are in need right now by meeting basic needs like food, shelter and clothing. The Mission also provides counseling as well as life and job skills training for those eager to improve their life situation.
