Over the past month, The Evening Sun staff has been going out into the community to perform good deeds. The team has been working with non-profit agencies and charitable organizations to help “Deliver Christmas” to the community and the organizations who do so much throughout the year.
Every weekday in December, staff members worked with different groups, performing tasks like cooking meals for the hungry, reading to children at the local schools, helping sort food for community food drives, packing up personal care items to be sent to children in Afghanistan, and contributing books to the Chenango County Toys for Tots campaign, among many others.
On Monday night, Jeff Genung, Patrick Newell and I visited the Taste and See Soup Kitchen in Oxford. For Jeff and I, it was our second visit to the soup kitchen. In the fall, The Evening Sun staff volunteered as part of the United Way’s Second Annual Day of Caring. For Pat, volunteering at the Soup Kitchen is a weekly tradition.
