Catholic Charities would like to thank the Watkins-Montour Rotary Club for hosting “Ribs and Riesling,” a very successful fundraiser for Catholic Charities’ Schuyler Outreach Food Pantry! Due to incredible community support, the event raised $1,200 on May 22 at The Fontainebleau Inn.
This monetary support is essential considering that in the last three months, Schuyler Outreach and our network of food pantries served an average of 716 individuals each month – 186 children, 394 adults, and 136 elderly persons.Nancy Brand, Director of Schuyler Outreach states, “Our Community may be small, but its support is huge! The need gets greater and greater, but it seems the support does too. I think that is the beauty of being a small community. We are aware of each other’s needs and those who can step up to the plate do. Rotary is a huge support to our community and we are grateful they are on our team!”
We are thankful for the support of the following business sponsors: Visions Federal Credit Union, Welliver, Water Works, Great Escape & Everything Ice Cream, E.C. Cooper, Inc. and Ergogreen, Inc.
With the community’s help, Catholic Charities will be able to supply families in need with 9 tons of food! Through the gifts, time, and support of our local community, together, we are fighting the effects of poverty in Schuyler County.
