Giving Back. It’s not just something we say, it’s something we do.
In keeping with that core value, several members of the Astria Solutions Group team visited Schenectady City Mission’s warehouse to sort clothes for a two-hour shift on October 28th.
Volunteers help the City Mission save money they’d normally spend on staff salaries and allows them to spend more on providing housing for over 100 men, women and children, plus serving more than 500 meals every day. We were happy to be a part of helping them fulfill the needs of the community.
In an effort to continue to support the City Mission’s efforts, Astria will be collecting clothing donations in the Big Red Bin located in our parking lot at 2165 Technology Drive in Schenectady through January 31. City Mission says it’s most in need of men’s large and extra large items, but also takes donations of women’s and children’s items. Time to clean out those closets!
City Mission also shared that they want items that are stained or ripped! They use those items for cleaning rags or sell them to mop manufacturers as a way to raise money for their outreach.
Help us help those in need!
