Volunteer Connections: January is National Mentoring Month

— The Volunteer Center would like to salute our 17 adult mentors and 55 Baker High School student mentors who are giving their time to help make a difference in the life of the child that they mentor every week here in the Baldwinsville Central School District.

H.E.L.P. needs your HELP!

At Christmas time, for most people, the answer to the question “is there anything special you need?” is not toilet paper, shampoo or diapers for my baby. But for the 178 families that registered for Christmas Bureau, this was a very typical answer. In response to this great need, many individuals, groups and churches very generously donated all kinds of paper products, cleaning supplies and baby items.

For low-income families, the struggle to buy these household items is a challenge they face daily. Food stamps and the WIC program do not cover paper products, cleaning supplies, personal care items or baby supplies. Please help to keep the shelves at our PEACE County West Family Resource Center and Community Food Pantry stocked with these items so that families will not have to go without them. Items can also be brought to the Volunteer Center between 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. Monday through Friday for our new B’ville C.A.R.E.S. program clients.
