Nonprofits laud SUCO volunteers' efforts


The Lord’s Table feeds a hot meal to 60 to 70 people a day, five days a week. St. James’ Episcopal Church also runs a food pantry.

“I’m happy as a clam,” said Mason, when asked about her thoughts on the work of the student volunteers, saying that they’d helped out on a particularly busy day. “For us to get everything done is wonderful.”

“I had never been to a soup kitchen before,” said Julia Caparotta, a childhood education major from Long Island. “It was a good experience.”

“I really wanted to get involved in the community as fast as I could, and I wanted to meet new people that were also interested in doing community service,” said Maegan Crawford, an early elementary education major from Stormville. “It’s been awesome.”
