2021 Blessing Bag Project underway
Help feed the hungry in RCS through a Blessing Bag this holiday season
Help us ensure families in Ravena-Coeymans-Selkirk have enough to eat this holiday season with a Blessing Bag. This is the fourth year Hope Full Life Center Inc., a Ravena-based charity located in Faith Plaza, will feed local struggling families during the holidays through the Blessing Bag Project. Providing extra help continues to be critical as 1 in 7 Americans are still uncertain how they will get enough to eat for themselves and their families.
With $30 donations from the community and some of our own resources, the Center’s volunteers buy food, pack bags and distribute them for free throughout the community to families in need using area food pantries and Helping Harvest, a food assistance program run by the Center. The bags are full of kitchen staples such as pasta and sauce, tuna fish, peanut butter, cereal and other foods that offer a variety of flavors and nutrition. Popular holiday foods are also included.
Fifty struggling families received Blessing Bags the week before Christmas from Hope Full Life Center in 2020.
The Ravena branch of the Bank of Greene County is partnering with us on this project. Anyone can stop at the bank to make a donation. Secure donations can also be made on our website, www.HopeFullLifeCenter.org, or mailed to us at 49 S Clement Ave, Ravena, NY 12143.
We're grateful to local business TCI of NY who has made a generous donation for 17 Blessing Bags.
We are excited to share kindness with our neighbors this Christmas. Thank you for supporting our effort.
