City Mission of Schenectady
Open Arms Church has been an active partner with the City Mission of Schenectady for many years, both corporately and individually. Beginning in 2016, teams of volunteers from Open Arms began to get more involved with the Weekend Backpack Program (WBP), an initiative to send food home with local schoolchildren over the weekend who would not otherwise have access to adequate meals.
Here are two ways you can get involved in the WBP:
1. Join with 8-10 others the first Monday of most months to assemble bags of food at the Distribution Center from 6:00-7:30pm.
All participants must register using this link:
2. Be one of the drivers to transport boxes of food from the Distribution Center to Schalmont MS and Jefferson ES on Thursday mornings from 8:45am-9:30am.
