UNITED WAY SERVES 300 MONTHLY

Seward Lends A Hand

At Food Distribution Site

State Sen. Jim Seward, R-Milford, lends a hand this morning at the United Way of Otsego & Delaware Counties’ monthly food distribution at Northern Eagle Beverage, 41 Browne St., Town of Oneonta.  Some 300 families participated in the food distribution, done in collaboration with the Regional Food Bank in the Capital District. “It’s another example of the wonderful work performed by caring individuals and organizations we have in our community,” said Seward.  “The high usage of this program also shows we need to do more to improve our local economy and ensure everyone can afford the basic necessities, including fresh food.”  (Jeff Bishop photo)
