Whether here in Saratoga Springs or out in the World, there are many ways to get involved and help our brothers and sisters around us. Learn how you can help below.
EOC provides aid to low-and/or fixed- income people and families in crisis. Volunteers needed on occasional or weekly basis for office work, to pick up and deliver food, work in the daily soup kitchen which takes place in our fellowship hall.
Rural food delivery
Volunteers needed to help package and/or deliver boxes of food to more than 40 families in Saratoga County twice each month. Packing volunteers meet at 8 am on the Saturday morning before deliveries to put the food into boxes for each family. On Sunday morning between 9:30 am and 12:30 pm delivery volunteers pick up and deliver the boxes to a family or two. Lack of transportation and health issues prevent these individuals from visiting the pantry on their own. Volunteers generally help out with one delivery every two or three months. Contact Chuck Kochheiser for information on how to participate.
The PNECC supports the efforts of RTSC and its mission to repair and weatherize residences of veterans and disabled individuals so they may stay in their own homes.
Code Blue Saratoga is a walk-in, emergency homeless shelter in Saratoga Springs that offers a hot meal and a warm and safe place to sleep when temperatures in the city are below
20 degrees or there is significant snowfall. It is supported by the city and community
organizations, funded by donations and grants, staffed by volunteers and with office space in our Nolan House. Many volunteers are needed at the shelter. A team of volunteers from PNECC cooks dinner once a week when it is open. Learn more about Cold Blue here.
