How They Served Their Community


Salvation Army Food Bank of the Southern Tier SPCA One team of WETM volunteers spent their day at Chemung County SPCA, where they sorted and organized storage sheds. Other staff members volunteered in two separate shifts at the Food Bank of the Southern Tier. Admistration at the food bank told volunteers that their efforts would be enough to provide 37 meals to the community. Finally, another team volunteered at the Corning Salvation Army packaging bags of food. The morning anchor team acted as greeters at the door and showed people where to go. Salvation Army officials told the WETM team normally they hand out about 20 meals a day. However, on Founder's Day they handed out nearly 50. Another group sorted through clothing and organized clothing racks.
