Mariner Finance: Food Bank of Central New York

The Foodbank of Central New York was selected to receive a $1,500 donation from Jeffie’s Choice.  Ali Chaudhry and Eric Foss of Mariner Finance had the wonderful opportunity to deliver the check along with all the canned goods that branch collected during the December 2017 food drive.  The operations & donations managers of the Food Bank of Central NY were nice enough to give a tour and share all the wonderful things they have going on at their NEW facility right outside Syracuse. 

Eric and Ali delivered the donation to the Food Bank of Central NY.

This is the new 35,000 sq. ft. facility just outside Syracuse; their trucks make daily deliveries to hundreds of local food shelters, church organizations and ‘soup kitchens’ every day!  On a typical cold & snowy winter day in Syracuse, you can imagine how important this service is to so many people in need.
