Pittstown Area Food Pantry Gets Ready for Thanksgiving – by Christine Barton

The holiday season is upon us. Volunteers from the Pittstown area food pantry spent Saturday November 17th arranging and handing out Thanksgiving food baskets to area families who requested assistance this holiday season. The mission of the Pittstown area food pantry is to provide food for people who need it, which is exactly what happened this Saturday before Thanksgiving.

Almost everything in the Thanksgiving boxes this year came from the Thanksgiving food drive led by Michael Raucci of Clifton Park Toyota, with the help and support of many area businesses. Pittstown food pantry volunteers arranged pickup of the boxes and transported them back to the church to get ready to open the doors for the 1pm pick up time. This year about 58 individuals signed up to receive a Thanksgiving food box.
