Help YAL Give Back This
Holiday Season! 

In the words of Matthew 25:35, "For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink.” 

We are asking everyone to consider buying an extra item or two each week when shopping and giving it to those in need. Each item donated signifies a meal for someone who would otherwise go hungry. This is a tremendous opportunity for all of us to practice generosity, love, and compassion towards people in need during this holiday season.
 
For your convenience a drop-off table will be located near the lobby.  
 
Items we will be accepting, but not limited to are canned beans or legumes, dried beans or legumes, peanut butter, pasta-rice-grains, cereal, oatmeal, soups, dried or canned fruit, canned vegetables, and canned tuna. Please try to stay away from any glass jars items. 
 
Donations will be accepted from November 12th until December 20th and all proceeds will be going to the Food Bank of Central NY.
 

Did Someone Say Ice Skating? 

  Please join us at Clinton Square from 6:00 to 8:00 pm on December 4th! Come enjoy the famous Syracuse Christmas tree all lit up along with Christmas music, hot chocolate and food venders. There is nothing like the Christmas spirit to bring our community together. 

Please RSVP by November 29th by emailing us at yalstsophia@gmail.com. 

Can't wait to see you all soon!
