The Massena Neighborhood Center


The Massena Neighborhood Center received a grant in the amount of $1,000.00 from the Northern New York Foundation,, Inc., which was used to purchase food from the Food Bank of Central New York. With this grant, families were able to receive nutritional food to help supplement their income. This grant also allowed the Massena Neighborhood Center  to purchase more food for the families who use our pantry. The Massena Neighborhood Center is very grateful for this grant and we would like to thank the Northern New York Community Foundation, Inc., very much!



St. Lawrence County CDP operates centers throughout the county.  The centers are staffed by a Director and provide services to low-income families with the assistance of community volunteers.

Each center has a food pantry and assists with food and other emergencies such as utilities, fuel and shelter. The Directors work with families in the area of family development, budgeting, education and job search.  The centers operate with funds from the county, United Way and private donations.

For further information about services, eligibility or volunteering opportunities, please call your local Neighborhood Center.
