    CC MOVE June 2 Food Distribution
    9:30am
    Location: Centro Civico, 143 E Main St, Amsterdam
  • On June 2, Catholic Charities is partnering with Centro Civico, Inc., St. Mary's Healthcare, Amsterdam ,Creative Connections Clubhouse , Montgomery County Cares, and SHINE to organize a mass food distribution in the Diocese of Albany as a part of its CC MOVE mobile initiative.

    Food items provided by the Regional Food Bank will be pre-packaged by staff and volunteers, and distribution will begin in the parking lot of Centro Civico at 9:30 AM. In order to maintain appropriate safety and social distancing, there will be two distribution lines: a drive-through line, and a walk-in line. Walkers can enter the lot through the North Main entrance, while drivers are asked to use the entrance on Western Ave. Due to traffic concerns, guests are asked not to arrive prior to the 9:30 start time.
