January 17, 2016–         Several of CDP’s Neighborhood Centers received grants from the Northern New York Community Foundation.  Canton Neighborhood Center received $1000 which was used to purchase food for their summer food program.  The Colton/Parishville/Pierrepont Center received $500 which was also used for a summer food program.  Potsdam Center received $500 to assist with the cost of their summer PB&J program and $1000 to purchase food from the Food Bank of Central New York to assist families in the Potsdam area.  Massena Neighborhood Center received $1000 as well to provide food to low-income families in the Massena area.  The Gouverneur Neighborhood Center purchased gift cards for milk with the $500 that they received.  Thank you to the Northern New York Community Foundation for their support of the Neighborhood Center food pantries who assist families in need in St. Lawrence County to improve their quality of life along with their nutrition.

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.
