Feeding the Valley Albany and Boys and Girls Clubs have worked together continuously to provide for families in need.

“A part of this, we have been fortunate enough to partner with Feeding the Valley, a local food bank here, to provide mobile food pantry drives. Over the past four weeks, we have been able to provide 1,500 boxes within our local community,” said CEO Marvin Laster.

Laster said the clubs are temporarily closed, but they are still providing service to those in need.
