Red Cross to serve lunch at Fort Plain school
FORT PLAIN Red Cross volunteers will be serving lunch out of Harry Hoag Elementary School in Fort Plain this afternoon rather than roaming the streets on mobile feeding routes.
Since flood waters raced through the area the end of last month, the Red Cross provided 7,511 meals, nearly 15,000 snacks, more than 2,200 cleanup kits and approximately 570 comfort kits to the owners of flood-damaged or destroyed homes in Herkimer, Madison, Montgomery and Oneida counties.
“The American Red Cross of Northeastern New York is certainly thankful for the help of our volunteers and our generous corporate partners like Price Chopper in making it possible for Red Cross to feed thousands of people in the affected areas,” said Gary Striar, CEO of ARCNENY. “The food and materials are making it possible for people to begin recovery from these devastating floods.”
Harry Hoag Elementary School is at 25 High St. in the village. Lunches will be served by need from noon to 1:30 and dinner from 5:00 to 6:30 p.m.
