In a report to the Long Range Planning Committee, Chairperson Bob Cook told his committee volunteers, "Our outreach proposal got a positive approval at the Board meeting Saturday." Bob has been working on this for the past year and the details finally came together well enough for a presentation to the Board.
The project is a cooperative effort with the Wyoming County Community Action organization, located on N. Main Street, opposite Simmons Road in Perry. The most visible part of the venture will be the food collection box which will be in Stoody Hall and available for deposit of non-perishable food items. These would be transported to the N. Main St. location for organized distribution to those in need. Bob continued,
Food collection containers are available which as previously discussed in LRPC would be placed at Stoody with an emphasis on the Saturday morning breakfast. Bob is hoping the LRPC can expand this into a very worth while endeavor for the surrounding communities.
