Trojan AHEPA Chapter 306 Volunteers Support Regional Food Bank

TROY, NY – On April 10, Trojan AHEPA Chapter 306 of Troy, NY, members and their children spent a beautiful, spring morning volunteering at the Regional Food Bank of Northeastern New York. Due to the pandemic, the Regional Food Bank has a strict limit on the number of volunteer slots, which Chapter 306 immediately filled.

Chapter 306 President Bill Seamon said that his Chapter volunteers sorted and packed thousands of pounds of food for distribution throughout 20 counties in upstate New York. During the past year, the Regional Food Bank provided 48.6 million pounds of food (40.5 million meals) through daily distributions, a 41% increase over the same time period last year. Chapter 306 was especially proud to provide this community service during the Lenten period.
