Neighbors helping neighbors
Life Solutions is a volunteer-based organization that provides emergency food services to the communities of Hamlin and Clarkson, NY
We thank our community and volunteers for all the support and work this past year. Through their efforts Life Solutions was able to provide emergency food services to over 450 families representing 1400 people. Food for 30,000 meals was given out this year through our pantry. In addition holiday food distributions were made, providing 150 families Easter Dinners, 166 families Thanksgiving Dinners, and 186 families Christmas Dinners.
In August, our Backpack Program provided 102 backpacks with school supplies to area children in need.
Our Angel Program which provides Christmas presents for area children in need served over 80 families with over 230 children. Each child’s gift included a requested toy and sweater or sweatshirt and other goodies.
This year we didn't hold our Children’s Bazaar, but rather offered a Children’s Santa Shop at our site. The Santa shop was a success as it offered a special place for the children to shop. Over 200 children enjoyed shopping for their loved ones at the Santa Shop.
