We wish to extend a hearty thank you to all our supporters — businesses and organizational sponsors as well as individual walkers — who supported our annual Fall SOS Walk in Massena on Oct. 20. For 25 years now, our Greater Massena Ministerial Association has sponsored and organized the SOS (Stamp Out Starvation) Walk to support local agencies who provide food assistance in our area.
Because of your generosity, we were able to realize nearly $6,000 in funds to support some of our community food support initiatives. Those who benefitted from your support include food pantries of St. Vincent dePaul, Massena Neighborhood Center and the Salvation Army; Community Free Meal at First United Methodist Church of Massena; and Massena Meals on Wheels.
On behalf of the faith communities whose pastoral staff members comprise the Greater Massena Ministerial Association, we thank you again. Without your help, it could not have been the success it was this year.
Rev. Justin Cardinal (president)
Rev. Charles Shearer (vice president)
Rev. Rachael Jordan (secretary)
