Roots and Wings receives helping hand from unlikely source

NORWICH – With various sources of state and federal funding becoming more and more difficult to come by, Roots and Wings in Norwich is getting a little extra boost from one seemingly unlikely charity organization.



Throughout the month of August, Roots and Wings - a subsidiary of Catholic Charities of Chenango County - received a helping hand from Under My Skin for Life, a local charity group dominated by members with a motorcycle and tattoo lifestyle, and a noble mission to “help those in times of need.”

Members of Under My Skin for Life organized a month-long food drive by working collaboratively with participating local businesses, including Garf’s Deli, Park Place Restaurant, Service Pharmacy, NBT Bank and GHS Federal Credit Union. Collection boxes were set up in each business, encouraging members of the community to give what they can to help those who need help most.
