ONEONTA – You need food? United Way of Delaware & Otsego Counties has it, no questions asked.
Working with Fidelis Cares and the Cooperstown Food Pantry, the local United Way today launched its first monthly mass food drive for those in need at North Eagle Beverages, which made its warehouse available for that purpose.
Ethan Winner, an eighth grader at Oneonta Middle School, packs food in plastic bags for United Way’s “Warm Inside and Out!” program. The bags of food and warm clothing will hang in Huntington Park until the end of the month for people in need to help themselves.
