Sarah’s Snippets – 10/17
SALT is a dynamic and effective organization that has achieved very positive results since its beginning, three years ago. Many homes have been rebuilt, many families helped to return home, many businesses assisted. Our statistics and databases verify these claims.
However, these are merely facts and numbers. The true measurement of SALT’s achievements lies in the faces of the people we affect and the stories they share.
Just this week, a VISTA member who works with SALT, shared her personal experience during an interview with Ed Sherlock for radio station WSDE. She is familiar with the Irene history in Schoharie County. But it wasn’t until she heard some personal testimonies at a meeting, that she really “got it”. In her words, “I had tears in my eyes listening to them talk about how hard it was to survive the storm. They still suffer the effects of that experience. I’m thankful for the chance to work with SALT where I can make a real difference for the people here.”
Good news for Hope for the Homebound – donations are arriving daily to help fill the ready kits for homebound residents! Items are still needed – check this week’s SALT newsletter for more details so you can participate. Not on our mailing list? call today so you don’t miss any updates (518-702-5017).
Volunteers spent their Columbus Day at SALT… scraping, sharing, painting, laughing, cleaning! First Reformed Church of Schenectady brought a group to assist – again. We’ve lost count of the many times they have helped. Thank You friends!
We love our local growers and their products! November 7th is the date to enjoy some of these wonderful foods skillfully prepared by a talented local chef, Jeanette Balins at our Taste of Schoharie Event. Reserve your table for dinner at “A Taste of Europe” Restaurant on Rte 145, E. Cobleskill.
This is an opportunity to have a fabulous meal while helping SALT continue its recovery to renewal work. Bring your friends!
