Bernie Clarke, a dedicated volunteer at the Lake Placid Ecumenical Food Pantry, was seen hard at work manning the stuffing station of the Thanksgiving bag assembly line on Monday morning. The volunteers at the pantry, located at St. Agnes Church, spent over an hour packing bags in preparation for distribution.
Linda Young, the organizer of the event, estimated that they would distribute around 275 bags of food throughout the day. The community’s support and dedication to helping those less fortunate were evident in the team’s efforts. The bags of food packed by the volunteers would go on to make a significant difference for many families during the holiday season.

Volunteers like Bernie Clarke and Linda Young have been instrumental in their ability to provide support to those in need. Their demonstration of care and generosity has made a significant impact on the lives of many families in the Lake Placid area.
