Easing their pain

Fundraiser to benefit trauma unit at Upstate Golisano Children’s Hospital

It’s something no parent wants to think about: your child has been injured and needs to stay in the hospital. Whether it’s just for a few days or a matter of months, in Syracuse, odds are your little one will end up at Upstate Golisano Children’s Hospital’s 11E Trauma/Surgery/Burns Unit, the only pediatric trauma center in Upstate New York. While he or she is certainly in good hands, that doesn’t necessarily make the stay any less terrifying for the child.

In Katrina’s wake

Ten years after storm, OSC is still rebuilding lives

Out of that determination, Operation Southern Comfort (OSC) was born. The group became a mission of St. Joseph the Worker Church in Liverpool, which affords it nonprofit status and the ability to get tax-deductible contributions and administrative support. Since that first trip, OSC has made more than 40 trips to the Gulf Coast. All trips are funded by traveler contributions; each volunteer is asked to pay $280 for their own expenses, room and board. Local contributions pay for construction materials. Volunteers have worked on personal homes, churches, community facilities and public parks. OSC participants have also planted trees in the area in an effort to lessen the impact of any future storms.

Stretching your grocery dollars

Food Bank of CNY’s Food $en$e program offers grocery packages for $15.50

Linda Davis and her husband don’t get out much. “If Phoenix and Baldwinsville fell off the map, I’d be gone,” Davis said. “I really don’t leave the area.” The couple is also on a fixed income. That’s why, for the last 20 years, they’ve taken advantage of the Food Bank of Central New York’s Food $en$e program, a monthly food distribution program for individuals and families who want help stretching their monthly food budget, like the Davises. Once a month, people who want to participate sign up at the host site near their home, pre-paying $15.50 in cash or food stamps for the food package. Later in the month, when the food package is ready to be picked up, the customers return to the same site for their delivery.
