Assemblyman Skartados Helps Distribute Thanksgiving Meals

The Salvation Army of Newburgh’s Thanksgiving distribution.
Wanting to do his part to give back to our community and help those struggling this Thanksgiving, Assemblyman Frank Skartados (D-Milton) volunteered at several community food distribution events this week.

On Tuesday, Nov. 26, 2013, he volunteered at the Loaves and Fishes’ Thanksgiving food distribution in Newburgh. This volunteer effort helped provide 1,150 families in the City of Newburgh with the ingredients needed for a traditional Thanksgiving dinner.

On Wednesday, Nov. 27, 2013, Assemblyman Skartados volunteered at the Salvation Army of Newburgh’s Thanksgiving distribution. He assisted volunteers from the Salvation Army and Friends of Newburgh Rowing Club in the distribution of food basket donations that were created with help from the $4.5 million in Emergency Food Assistance grants provided by the state and were delivered by the New York State National Guard.
