Event raises more than $3,700 for Feed Our Vets

Posted

UTICA — The annual 2022 Communications Workers of America Local 1126/Leatherstocking Club Charity Golf Tournament teamed up with the LMK Foundation to raise more than $3,700 for the Feed Our Vets organization.

Since 2009, Feed Our Vets, headquartered in New York Mills, has served more than 40,000 veterans and distributed almost 3 million pounds of food and more than $200,000 in gift cards. The non-profit helps serve the most basic needs for those veterans who have served our country yet still cannot afford to put food on their own table.

Feed Our Vets holds its overhead to less than 10% annually, meaning that 94% of the funds raised at the tournament went directly to helping veterans and their families, according to event organizers. In September, the organization served 615 veterans and 1,474 of their dependents with more than 44,000 pounds of food and $3,000 in gift cards.

“CWA 1126 appreciates the help of the Community Services Committee and the Leatherstocking Club for their efforts to raise money to help those that have helped us,” the announcement said.

Tournament sponsors included: CWA Local 1126; Fine, Olin & Anderman, LLP; Mohawk Valley Health System; and Tucker-Haskins, Inc.

Hole sponsors were: Utica District Telephone EFCU; AFL-CIO Central New York Labor Council; Big Apple of New Hartford; Herkimer County Detachment Marine Corps League; Utica Center for Development, Inc., CNY Veteran’s Outreach Center; New York Mills Fire Department; Ramon’s Bakery; Inserra’s Flooring Outlet, Inc.; Hidden Meadow Nutrition Inc, (Nutrishop); Dick Smith’s Tavern; Nelson Financial Group; Yorkville Memorials; and Monarch Banquets LLC.
