Music for the Mission aids local food pantries


SYRACUSE — Music for the Mission has provided emergency grant funding to local food pantries who are working tirelessly to help families in need across our community during the COVID-19 crisis.

The organization recently distributed nine grants, each worth $1,000, to several community-based organizations dedicated to fighting hunger, including the Rome Lions Club; the Lowville Food Pantry; and the Sullivan Food Cupboard, Inc., of Chittenango.

Founded in 2009 by Joe Stanley of Stanley Law in Syracuse, Music for the Mission is a non-profit organization focused on assisting the homeless and the hungry in Central New York.

Music for the Mission raises money by sponsoring local musical events and redirecting proceeds to small, non-profit organizations focused on Central New York. By supporting the organization’s local and regional events, participants and attendees are providing targeted assistance to those within the local community.

Music for the Mission is seeking donations to help local food pantries and homeless shelters. The organization works to address these two worldwide issues, by starting locally.

Additionally, Music for the Mission encourages local non-profit organizations dedicated to assisting the homeless and hungry to apply for emergency grant funding today. For information, visit
